Question

Hello again!!! we are waiting for the decision on my husband TDIU claim, 40% fibro, 30 % ptsd (going to clinic for 2 weeks), 20% foot. Total 70%. We received in the mail a letter saying that " we are writing you as the parent of a boy or girl who may be eligible for Eduacational Assistance under laws administered by the Veterans Affairs Administration. The enclosed pamphlet describes this benefit...."

So my questions is, Why do they send the letter and pamphlet???

Has anyone receive this information before getting the TDIU awarded????

Thanks for all the help....

They sent the pamphlet because they want you to be able to understand the Chap 35 benefits that your child has just become eligible to receive due to the 100% Permanent & Total disability that your husband has just been awarded.

Congratulations!

Generally I would say he's been awarded 100% or TDIU, w/P&T, however it could be an error, as I've also heard of those recently. Call the 800 number and have him ask what his current rating is. It's usually in the computer if that's the case. Don't ask if he's won, just what his current rating is.

sometimes the VA mails stuff and the people in the mailroom put the wrong stuff in the envelopes I was sent a booklet of Chapter 35 benefits when they awarded me 50% for PTSD so it was just a mistake so then you think you have got the P&T rating and when you read the letter then you find out that you didn't get 100% let alone be eligible for CH 35 benefits let alone CHAMPVA you have to take stuff in envelopes as a mistake until you get the letter telling you that the veteran has been rated either 100% P&T or TDIU P&T until that is in writing everything is just a guess do NOT get your hopes up based on any inserts

always expect the worse from them then anything you do get will be a reason to celebrate I don't trust anything with them anymore until I see it in writing and the money is in the bank they are sadistic people

    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?”
     
    Note:

    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
