Question restated: Is it possible be awarded IU with an effective date retroactive several years ago?

Sure CG. If you did not have the necessary percentage combination to be eligible for TDIU until sometime after your award of your first claim (say you were 20% for some time before you were diagnosed with the other disability that put you over the 60%, or what ever), but you were awarded the necessary percentage in, like, 2003, then if you file the TDIU claim, say, in 2008 and are granted the TDIU, then you should be awarded the TDIU retroactive back to the date you became ELIGIBLE for the TDIU.

i think, probably, maybe...........duh, seems to me i saw that, somewhere.........hmmmmmmm, tell ya what, if some else doesn't come up with a BETTER answer then go with mine............until i get up enough energy to actually look it up......okay..... B)

I remember when I got TDIU, I got a goodly sized retro check/deposit...bought The Nurse a M-B with part of it.

You must be rated at least 70% with one of the disabilities rated at 40%.

This is the min. requirement, bottom line. PTSD'd or not, physical or not.

Their are no gray areas. This is what you need at bare to be considered. :D

I forgot to mention that "case law" will do little in our fight for benefits. Case law seems to confuse my veteran friends by fueling the grey area.

We vets are helped on a case by case basis, but can't be helped if the min requirement of entitlement for services has not met.

Yes. It's the same with all claims.

The claim begins once it's filed. IU or not, if on appeal same thing until it closed.

Yes.

    • 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...
