If you are on TDIU and are not working then the VA will have a hell of a time taking it away from you. They have to show that you are able to work, and how can they do that if you have not worked in 6 years? Now if you go to work full time then you are in trouble. Are you P&T? How old are you? If you are over 55 there is a slim chance they will even call you in for a new C&P. If you are on SSD and TDIU I would not worry too much.

If VA has granted you IU and paid you for it at 100% since 1998, I seriously doubt they

can reduce this without very good reason -- something like you start working or

fraud is shown to exist.

when am I gonna get the C&P?

You can be scheduled and requested to appear for a re-exam anytime VA request's it.

What has you so worried ?

Lifetime IU is not guaranteed. In order to place a security blanket n the IU, a Vet should pursue a schedular benefit. This can be done over time for as we age, secondary conditions are likely as well as the severity of conditions will usually increase.

If you don't work it probably is for life.

GuaymasJim, Dec 1 2008, 06:51 PM . . . Having said that, an attempt was made last year to reduce my disability compensation to my schedular rating because I did not return the 21-4140 employment questionnaire. I found out by accident that the reduction was going to take place less than a week later. The regs say that I am not required to fill our and return one. I informed them of that fact but they would not acknowledge their own regulations.

Jim, Do you remember the VA Regs you cited for them; I have not been sent a 21-4140 in a couple years, I may print one and FAX it to them, but I would also like to be able to argue (as you did) with law ---wondering if you would post those VA Regs for me??? Thanks Brother, ~Wings

I sent them copies of the regulation. Didn't make a damned bit of difference, so I finally faxed them a filled out copy of the form and no reduction happened.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...

    • Thanks Berta for your help. I did receive my 100% today for my IU claim on 6/20/2018. It only took 64 days to complete and it is p&t. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
