Question

I am serviced connected 90 percent. I filed for TDIU in 07 based on PTSD 50%, and I received Social Security in Jan 09. for PTSD, depression, and Substance abuse disorder. I just received infomation from the VA I have severe Sleep Apnea (new claim). I filed the new evidence with the VA for service connected. What are my chances of beening approved for TDIU or just plain out 100 percent due to the rating schedule of 90 percent, plus 50 percent from Sleep Apnea is 100 percent total . Should I wait for the decision on IU, or file a new claim for 100 percent based on new evidence? Thanks

Personally, I would file for an increase in your PTSD rating, requesting a 100% schedular rating in addition to claiming TDIU. jmo

When you reached 70% that should have caused the VA to consider you for TDIU and then send you the TDIU form-

Did they deny TDIU when they did that rating or is the pending TDIU claim based on them sending you the TDIU form at that time?

they denied tdiu the first time I applied. VA reported it was not enough evidence to award me IU.

I was denied TDIU in 07. They informed me there was not enough evidence to award me IU. Since then I was awarded SSA.

When you file a claim for IU you are also filing a claim for increase for your service connected condtion.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

      Financial contributions are never required, but always appreciated.


      NOT tax deductible, HadIt.com is NOT a non profit and any contribution you make is just a gift and cannot be deducted on your taxes.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
