6 - 12 months and they might request additional development by way

of an additional C&P examination.

" I saw your appeal is completed and they granted 2 items. Migraines and individual unemployability. I don't know what percentage for the migraines nor the dates."---this was sent to me from my VA rep. She said I should get the letter next week. Does this mean Im 100%? From what date will they retro it from? What additional non monetary benefits will I be eligible for?

YES it does!!!! The retro should go back to the date of the TDIU application in most cases.

TDIU is paid at the 100% compensation rate!

Congrats - but best to wait for the formal letter which will tell you more.

And check your bank account if you use direct deposit- as they might put the cash in the bank before the award letter comes.

"Went to Voc. Rehab. and was told I was UNEMPLOYABLE due to service connected health conditions and they fowarded the letter to the NOD file.Im going through the Atlanta VA."

This s proof positive that you are unemployable due to your SCs.

Have you applied for SSDI yet?

Thats a strange situation, I worked since I was 15, went into Navy at 20 did 10 years and got out. I havent been able to keep much of a job since I got out 2001. Maybe 3000 per year for 3 years and no work at all since 05. When I called the SS people they said I did not qualify because I didnt pay enough in on certain quarters or something like that. I called the VA to see if they have sent out a letter yet and was told " the decision has been made but needs to be authorized" something about checking it for mistakes before it gets approved and award letter sent, But that was the National Call center and Im hoping my DAV rep has a little more insight into the whole thing.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
