:huh:

Never thought i would get this far, but can someone tell me the pay for 100% TDIU? bill

:( Dependent Status70%[/colorVeteran with Spouse & Child$1,303$1,511$1,699$2,711Veteran with Child Only$1,200$1,394$1,567$2,565Veteran with Spouse, One Parent and Child$1,381$1,600$1,799$2,823

Do NOT forget to apply for the free life insurance and on the amount of cost write in waiver. The first 10 thou is free. You get a free national parks pass, you can use military lodging when traveling around, especially nice if you are out of state, it is cheaper to stay on base. In CA, you be exempt from property tax, check with your local veteran service officer for the other benefits. If you are not military retired, remember to apply for CHAMP VA so your wife can have health insurance. Do not forget voc rehab is there is you have any disabilities where you need help at home, like wheelchair ramps, bathroom redone, etc. Good luck, and congradualtions. Q

Q,

He only qualifies for VA insurance if it is a NEW disability, NOT for one which was currently existing and has received an increased rating or even, IIRC, if he gets TDIU.

Don't overlook the fine print.

My wife asked a question, what happens if I am 100% TDIU and in a month or ?????? I die. Is she entitled to any of my benefits? bill

After 10 years at IU she would get DIC which is about $1100 a month I think. The VA and government are big spenders. They want you to have the good manners to just die quickly and ask for nothing.

That's good then. SOunds like you got a better deal than I did.

As for DIC, I don't know much about it as I have no dependents so I will never need it, but you can read about it here:

http://www.vba.va.gov/benefit_facts/index.htm

Scroll down the page to "Dependents and Survivors" on the left side of the page and the first entry listed in that section is "Dependence and Indemnity Compensation." Click on that and you can open the document or save it to your computer.

...if you can get past all that Spanish crap on their "new and improved" website.

I received my notice today. VA has moved my MDD from 50% to 70% as of the first date I filed my claim and granted 100% TDIU as of the day I requested TDIU. Basically it says,

We granted entitlement to the 100% rate effective Aug 31, 2005, because you are unable to work due to your service connected disability/disabilities.

No examination will be scheduled in the future.

Basic eligibility to Dependents’ Educational is established from August 31, 2005.Does any one know what will my wife may be entitled to?

WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!

It looks like they granted you P & T also- because they said the wife was eligible for DEA-

She might also be eligible for CHAMPVA too-

She can go to a VA approved college or university and the VA will pay her a monthly check towards her tuition (Chapter 35)

I posted a lot here as to how CHapter 35 works.

You should check to see if your Insurance has Waiver of Premium. If it does you will not have to make payments anymore.

Billy....I just recently got TDIU and I qualified for Insurance and the VA pays the premium.

You should get a letter with all the benefits you will now receive.

Army, did you have insurance before your rating. Was this your first rating? I have been told you have 2 years from the first time you are rated. I'm past that? bill

Billy I was talking about your insurance for 100,000. Most Insurance Agents add Waiver of Premium when they sell a policy cause it is pretty inexpensive and more people end up disabled than die before 65.

Congrats on the 100% IU, P&T!!

In another post (100% Tdiu) that I printed 9/25, BobbyQ stated that if you get IU you get a free national parks pass and can use military lodging when you travel. I'd never heard of those before. I knew about the insurance, DEA, and CHAMPVA but not a parks pass and use of military lodging.

1. Is there a comprehensive list of 100% P&T benefits that you are eligible for and how to go about getting them? If so, please post it.

2. If there are any differences in the benefits between 100% schedular and 100% IU, please post that as well.

Congrats again. It's always good to hear about a vet's claim being properly adjudicated.

Thanks,

TS Snave

You will be able to get a ID card so you can shop at PX/commisary and use base facilities. The difference between schedular and IU is you can work with schedular but not IU. It depends on what state your from for free hunting/fishing licences, free registration, state parks, property tax discounts etc., following is the site for state va's:

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
