I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help. 1-22 1BCT 4th I.D. "Regulars by God"
A little history this has been an issue since 2001 and a hell of a ride, so I assume since 5 years will put me at 21 years it then will be a protected status. My original claim (15 years later) was 50%. I went for an increase about 10 months after.I went for an increase for my PTSD as things were progressively going downhill. It looked as I may have been granted 100%, though they came back with a 70% with no routine future exams stipulation. It was explained by my VA contact that this means I will receive this raiting until my death as long as I do not go back to try for any increase or attempt to as that could put me back in the line for a future exam. Has anyone heard of such a thing or the VA doing that with other claims? I would think the best bet is to let sleeping dogs lie, and never ask for an increase or at least wait until the 20 year mark has passed in the event the disability continued to worsen.Thoughts?
