Can I Apply For Tdiu



I just learned about TDIU. I want to know if I can apply for TDIU?

I receive a federal disability retirement due to my knees,Social Security

disability due to the knees, and VA compensation for the knees which are rated

20% service connected for each knee.

If I am able to apply what forms do I need, items of proof,etc. Does a doctor

need to sign anything? Would it be backdated to the date of my retirement?

You should file especially if you retirement was for your knees. I got OPM disability and then TDIU. I got SSD along the way. File out the TDIU form and send it in pronto. Your last day at work could be your effective date for TDIU. It was for me because I went directly from work to the VA nuthouse. They gave me a GAF of 40 because I told them I was going to kill myself. That is how you get admitted. My employer had just thrown me out on the curb, literally.
