Question

Hello folks- Hoping all is well.

RE: TDIU PT.

I recently filed a 21-8940 in request of a TDIU PT rating (against my VSO'S advice) to get an

early efective date and maybe approval. I also applied for AA for my disabled wife. long story

short- I was approved for AA for my wife and denied TDIU PT. YEA!!!! Reason ( their words verbatum) IU award was denied. reason being

a review of your file shows that you were granted and awarded IU effective 12/01/08. therefore, the request you submitted on VA form21-8940

Veteran's application for increased compensation based on unemployability reieved on 08/20/10 is not considered a valid claim.

You are being paid at the 100% rate for IU. your overall or combined rating is 70%. We do not add individual percentages of each condition

to determine your combined rating. We use a combined rating table that considers the effect from most serious to the least serious condistions.

DID they only concider IU and not my reqest for TDIU PT??? (sounds like they did)

My question is now that I have a date to anchor my claim. what is my next move once I file a NOD????? the only new information I have is my treatment notes

from my vet center counseler.

THANX GUY'S BANDIDO BILL.

There may be some confusion here, TDIU and IU are the same thing and they pay a veteran the 100% rate of compensation. Now if you were not awarded P & T all you would need is a statement (progress report) from your doctor saying that your service connected conditions are static or will most likely not improve and you should be awarded P & T but you are already getting the TDIU/IU. If I am off others will chime in.

Did you get chapter 35 benefits when you got IU back in 2008? That would mean you are P&T. If not do as Pete992 has said and just submit evidence to the VA that your disability is static. This should be evidence from a doctor.

Thanks guys your top notch brothers and sisters

If yall dont mind I have one more question. Will my treatment records from my counselor at my vet center aid in my claim?

They have reference to my disabilitis saying that my disabilities prevet me from gaining emploment. It also states that

I should apply for P&T Chapter 35.

As long as your counselor is a certified psychiatrist or psychologist it should work. It may work with a social worker but I am not to sure. It would greatly help your case if you can get a VA psychiatrist to put it in your treatment records or if the Vet Center has a psychiatrist that could make this statement.

Hope the best

If the VET Center counselor is a certified psychologist then that word is as good as one from the vamac. You can bank on that. They work for the VA but have a little more freedom of what to write for you. Trust me, I have a great VET Center psychologist that I go to every week in ST. Louis and she has helped me in more ways then one with the VA.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    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
