Ssd And Tdiu Does One Help Other

Question

I was originally SC for 80%. I put in a claim for TDIU at that time and was denied. The one year time period has passed. I put a claim in for depression and got 50% which pushed me up to 90%. I was awarded SSD baised off of my SC disablities. they dated it back from my discharge the same time I got my 80% rating. Will it be to late to file for this?Will this help me with the TDIU chances? I filled out the TDIU paperwork and sent it in with the SSD award letter. I am pretty sure I asked this before but just wanted to see if anyone else had the same expirience.

Major depression-50%

Yes, it does and no it doesn't help one another. It should help, provided it's for the same conditions, but the VA sometimes, probably more often than not, ignores it and sends you to appeal hell, anyway, as a delaying technique. jmo

My county service rep told me the other day that a new law was passed and that the two agencies have to take the other into account. Now if that is true or not I am not sure but he has not lied to me before. I just applied for ssdi so I guess I will find out.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
