  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Basically veterans that are awarded 100% schedular most likely have disability ratings that are rated around 230% but VA combines their ratings and only pays them 100%.

TDIU/IU is when a veteran is rated service connected and is less than 100% but their condition is so severe that VA awards them TDIU/IU and pays them the 100% rate. The veteran is considered unemployable.

P & T is when a veteran has a disability that is reasonably certain to continue throughout his or her life. P & T adds Military MWR ID Card, dependent education (CH 35), dependent health care (CHAMPVA), Life Insurance, and state benefits (Check your state).

A veteran can be awarded 100% schedular and P & T and

A veteran can be awarded 100% TDIU P & T

If I missed something others will chime in.

I would also like to point out that the rate of comp is the same whether you are 100% or 70% being paid at 100% the only time extra monies become a factor is when there is additions such as dependents and SMC benefits.

Also when you get 100% your disabled insurance through the VA is free for the first 10,000 and you are allowed to purchase an additional 10,000.

A claimant can also be rated 100% schedular by meeting the criteria for 100% w/one disability, as I am, 100% for PTSD, alone.

    • VA Law
      Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is governed by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

      It can be a bit daunting. Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.

       










      U.S.C. United States Code United States Code is the law and the U.S.C. is the governments official copy of the code.


      U.S.C.A. United States Code Annotated U.S.C.A. contain everything that is printed in the official U.S. Code but also include annotations to case law relevant to the particular statute.


      C.F.R. Code of Federal Regulations The C.F.R. is the interpretation of the law


      VA M-21 Compensation and Pension Manual


      VA M-21-4 C & P Procedures


      VA M28-3 Vocational Rehabilitation

    • Rating "Protections"
      The VA has several regulations governing various levels of "protection". The terms "permanent", "protection", and "total" are misnomers due to the various ways the VA has defined them.

      Here is some information on VA ratings protection (but the word "protection" has a different meaning to the VA). The exception to these rules is if they can prove fraud.

      5 years

      The key part to remember about the 5 year rule is found 3.327(a) indicating that these are guidelines which are not necessarily set in stone. The key takeaway for most veterans is reduction should not occur if there has not been material improvement over 5+ years or if the veteran is over the age of 55.

       

      10 years

      In brief, ratings in effect for 10 years cannot have service connection severed.

       

      20 years

      In brief, a disability rated for 20 years cannot be reduced below the lowest rating percentage it has held for the previous 20 years.

       

      P&T

       

      TDIU

       

       

       

      Disclaimer: I am not a legal expert, so use at own risk and/or consult a professional representative. The VA updates their regulations from time to time, so this information may become outdated.
