  1. Update: My claim status went to prep for notification on Friday, Dec 30 and this morning it disappeared and moved to historical claims as completed. Nothing has changed, disabilities and AB8 letter are still exactly the same. I would assume this means my claim for TDIU was denied, however I also had a dependent claim added in which also closed at the same time (opened as a separate claim when my daughters started college, but the system automatically rolled it into my then open claim)...I would think that at least there would be the addition of my dependents, which should be more administrativ
  2. If a veteran receives 100% tdiu and starts work to see if they can handle it but they can't will VA reduce your percentage. I worked for 4 months but had to quit do to the safety of others and myself because of PTSD and I have to take a annually questionnaire. Will my benefits be reduced even tho I can't handle work?
  3. I figured SSDI payments for myself come out to 1673 a month which equal over 20000 is that counted as income earned in the VAs eyes? I've been granted TDIU and I don't want to lose it because of social security. Sorry if this has been answered I didn't see it when I searched it.
  4. Hi, I am new here, I recently was awarded 70% for mental health issues which is secondary to my service connected disabilities and was previously rated at 40%, now combined rating of 80%. Each of the my service connected disabilities total 40% - 10% each. I won't detail them out, no need. Since I was medically discharged from the Army rated at 10% in 2005, I have had 7 jobs and have more and more issues with each one since I started them. My longest job I have had was my first job out of the Army and it was working for my father-in-law, who retired after 5 years working from him
  5. Went before a VA review officer on Tuesday, and he awarded me Permanent TDIU(among other things), on the spot. How far back is the award taken to? The last day I worked, or the date I first filed the TDIU? I haven't worked since 1998 by the way. Thanks.
  6. Hello fellow Vets, I am rated at 90% service connected disabled. I am also scheduled for surgery in February 2017, for a service-connected injury. I will have a joint corrected and bone surgery. I will also be in a cast or other therapeutic device for at least 12 weeks. I know that I will not be able to return to work, due to pain and other medical conditions. How do I go about getting my Doctor to give me a letter of unemployability in my behalf ? Thank You all in advance .
  7. I just received my notice from VA. They denied my claim for TDIU. First, they say I meet the schedular qualifications and then they say that I have not been found unable secure or follow substantial gainful employment. They acknowledge that I was accommodated to a reduced work schedule and receive SSDI, but there is no mention of my disability as to my retirement. I was eligible for retirement and took it. No need to mention disability since it is not disability retirement. Further, I declined Independent Living Services. I declined it because I live with my husband and son. If I nee
  8. What is the spousal support for a spouse married to a veteran who is 100% service connected and the spousal support for a spouse married to a veteran who has 100% unemployability and the veteran is deceased?
  9. Not sure where this goes and feel free to move it. I just wanted to give hope and good news for my fellow VETS. I am 100% schedular with the VA and sent in for student loan forgiveness. I just got my confirmation today that my Student loans were fully forgiven! YAY......I am NOT P&T or TDIU either. So as long as the VA considers you 100% you qualify for the student loan forgiveness. GOD IS GREAT!!!
  10. So I waited the 7-10 days to call Peggy bc I still haven't received my BBE for my case that completed and closed Jan 4. The surprising thing was they were willing to fax it to me, I have an online fax number so it just goes to my account and I download it. That was a pleasant surprise, since I've read about folks waiting for months. The bad news was that they denied TDIU and my dependency claim. They stated that I didn't complete the application for dependents so it was denied until I provide all of the information (nice to find out 6 months later). Thing is, I completed it online and fil
  11. What are my chances that this will be quickly decided? I have over 10 health issues being service connected I'm at 100%TDIU not permanent yet one of my disabilities is rated at 70 for TBI the main reason my TDIU went through in 3 months. That and emailing Ted Ebert and Mr. McDonald. My last check from my work before I was let go yesterday will be Friday and then I have no money coming in to pay the bills. I guess until the 1st I called case management they said your retro is on your way I said 3k she said no 1500. I needed an explanation I said I was awarded Nov 11 that two payments I've gotte
  12. First off, I hope everyone had a great New Year. I am not certain that my NOD has been denied yet, but when I called Peggy I was told that a statement of the case was being prepared, so I'm preparing for worst case scenario. Background-I was granted service connection for systemic lupus at 60% and acquired psychiatric condition to account for memory loss at 50% in September 2015, effective date was Jan 7 2010. I submitted a NOD on Nov 4 2015, disputing the rating I received for the lupus, and requested tdiu. My VA doctor has completed a DBQ for me and stated that the lupus does cause severe
  13. HELLO EVERYONE MY NAME IS EDGAR I SERVED IN THE ARMY FROM 2002-2005. I AM CURRENTLY AT 80% RATE, RECENTLY IN JULY I GOT AWARED 80% FOR unspecified trauma and stressor related disorder with major depressive disorder (previously addressed as major depression) 50% bilateral hearing loss 40% hypertension 10% tinnitus 10% I have been unemployed since 2015 and when i was awared the 80% in July 2016 the DAV sent me a letter that i could apply for TDIU so i called the DAV and told them that i have not be
  14. I'd just like to thank all of those "gurus" and knowledgeable folk that led me in the right direction with my claim. After six long and tedious years, the VA has finally deemed me 100% TDIU Permanent and Total. In September of this year, I didn't even have a rating and I went from 70% in October to 100% P&T IU in December. With God's help, the power of the IMO, and hadit.com, changed my outcome. Now I have all the benefits of a truly disabled Marine, deserved, but long time coming. No more automobile registration fees, property taxes or student loan debt. Moreover, my kids will receive Ch
  15. I still have two issues I've never filed for on top of two pending appeals. Do I keep going now I'm 100 TDIU it's for a broken pelvis and a back injury of the T3 and T4 that still calls me strain? I know it could open a can for rescheduled exams I'm not worried nothing has changed that would give me a lesser outcome I have had 3 exams for my TBI all three 70 since 2010 memory will never come back fully. How long until it's considered permanent even though my doctor says it is after seeing my MRI. Is requesting a permanent TDIU rating ok?
  16. I was hoping that someone can tell me how and where I can read the notes from my C&P or any of my notes from my Dr.'s appointments. Thanks in advance.
  17. Went from prepare to notify to gathering of evidence on a Saturday?I am about to lose my mind. And then there's a new claim finished in historical claims eligibility determination complete. My because my claim has 7 claim issues the TDIU claim was finished but the claim begins to work on the deferred issues? I am guessing
  18. I have a question about how retroactive compensation. The rater finds that I have a disability at 70%. I know that over 70% disability I am paid at the TDIU rate. Would I receive retro compensation at the rate of 70% or at 100%?
  19. From all I've read both here and on the Law Blog, it's a good idea to file a Fully Developed Claim as well as TDIU together. Anyone filed these two together? Any comments, experiences....concerning the matter?
  20. The person rating my VA disability claim left his work phone number on one of the documents on a C&P Exam page. Should I call them and ask them if they can speed my claim up? I have filed for TDIU. Based on the results from the C&P Exam it the boxes for 70 % were not checked. I am waiting to hear back from the VA about scheduling a C&P exam for Sexual Dysfunction. That is the last part of my claim that needs to be addressed. However Christmas is coming up, I really need the money. Is it a good idea to call the person rating my claim and ask them to settle
  21. My TDIU claim is closer to a resolution. I called the "800 Number for Ebenefits" today. My claim is still in the Preparing for a Decision phase. However my claim was worked on today and the note attached to my claim said that the "statement of case" is/needs "promulgating". I don't understand what this means. Could anyone shed some light? I have been approved for SSD for the same conditions for SC conditions of TBI (Organic Brain Injury in SSD-Talk) , Anxiety, Depression.
  22. My appeal had been advanced on the docket since 2013. I received the BVA favorable decision for two of four conditions in August 2016 with an EED of 2009. The tdiu and migraines were remanded for further development. After contacting Under Secretary Bob in Oct 2016 I received an e-mail from the Office of Case Management stating they were assisting with my inquiry and would receive a SSOC discussing my 2009 appeal. I got a SSOC 5-7days mentioning tdiu and migraines were denied. I have yet to receive any retro payments. Every time I call t
  23. Hello, I am waiting on a TDIU claim. I was recently awarded SSDI, and I submitted my acceptance letter to strengthen my TDIU claim. I have been told that my claim is in "Preparation for Decision" (or something like that). My question is this; Would it be uncommon for a regional office to process a TDIU and award it? I know that all claims are different. I'm just wondering is it common for VA regional office employees to take time between Christmas and New Years off. I know that in many other government agencies this is the norm, but is it true for a VA regiona
  24. Have Cervical 30% rating for a 4 level fusion doct stated in 2008 when it was a 3 level fusion i would only get worse in which i did and added a fusion in 2015 and stated i will get worse again in which i am and will probably require a fifth level fusion. Have Lumbar 40% rating for ddd Have Major Depression Disorder of 70% Have Migraine rating at 30% I would like to know should i file for TDIU or IU ? what is the difference between the two? What will i need to file and how do list for which ratings? Further can i request P&T because my surgeon states that i w
  25. This is what my examiner put for functional level I was happy about it but it true. How might this effect my claim for TDIU or IU? I am 90 right now. 4. Functional impact Do any of the Veteran’s residual conditions attributable to a traumatic brain injury impact his or her ability to work? [X] Yes [] No If yes, describe impact of each of the Veteran’s residual conditions attributable to a traumatic brain injury, providing one or more examples: (1) Trauma effects on Veteran's Memory seem to create one of his most significant impairments.
