Question

I recieved a letter from VA over the weekend about my iu rating being deferred is it because I have a total of three c and p's coming up.And all of them say that they are for increase but my claim was for IU.The c and p's are for ptsd,migranes,hypertension and hearing.

Remember there is no such thing as an IU rating. It is an ancillary benefit that is awarded to the Vets who meet the criteria and who cannot hold gainful employment. The C and P exams are for increases so they are looking at your conditions to see if they can be increased in order to award IU.

A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.

I agree with Basser...and recall reading that an IU claim is not a seperate claim, so it is unclear why your IU was deferred...did they decide anything, or just defer everything?

Since the VA has no such thing as a deadline...I am really curious as to why they would "defer" this claim...instead of just delaying it, like they usually do. It seems like a waste of ink and paper to me.

VETERAN'S APPLICATION FOR INCREASED COMPENSATION BASED ON UNEMPLOYABILITY.

This is just my opinion but when a veteran files a claim for TDIU, VA will request C & P exams to see if the veteran's service connected disabilities could be increased and if the veteran is unable to work because of his or her service connected disabilities.

If I am off others will chime in

Pete is correct. My first letter from the VARO when I requested TDIU....."Please note that a claim for individual unemployability is taken as an increase in all of your service connected disabilities."

Agree. When the VEteran asks for an "increase" he is assumed to be seeking the Maximum, that is 100 percent. Unless he is awarded 100 percent schedular, then he is assumed to also be seeking TDIU.

Still, I dont know why the claim was deferred Unless they rated something else, either denied or awarded. Then I understand how/why TDIU can be deferred.

I would certainly think the IU was deferred, due to the need for

additional development, which is probably the 3 C&P exams

that have been scheduled.

Carlie passed away in November 2015 she is missed.
