Fill out the form, print it out and send it to the VA during your anniversary month when you were awarded IU. Always send everything to the VA by certified mail with a return receipt. Make sure you keep a copy of the completed form.

Pete, for curiosity, where would that rating decision statement be, on the rating letter? Will it state specifically 'scheduler' or 'tdiu'? Still researching here, but can't seem to find where the manual says no questionairre is needed from 'schedular'. Thanks for all you do here at Hadit! p.s. hopes this question/reconfirmation may help others too!

No, 100% schedular veterans do not have to send in the employment questionnaire only the TDIU veterans does.

If your ratings add up to a combined rating of 95%, VA will round up and you are considered 100% schedular. Also your rating decision should state if you are 100% TDIU or 100% schedular.

Under Instructions: You are receiving compensation at the 100 percent rate based on being unable to secure or follow a substantially gainful occupation as a result of your service-connected disabilities.

http://www.vba.va.go...-4140-1-ARE.PDF

Your rating decision should state your combined rating and the percentage. Also veterans who are awarded 100% P & T will be given the VA form 21-8760 "Additional Information for Veterans With Service-Connected Permanent and Total Disability." It should be on the Notification letter before you get to the Reason for Decision pages

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
