    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

Iu Decision Time Frame


3 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

There is no set time or answer, other than "as long as it takes". If all the "ducks are in a row", the time should be shorter than it might otherwise be.

The common time frame might be a year or less, with a couple of months as the shortest, and more than a year for the longest.

What RO is your claim at? Maybe find out from others who have filed TDIU at your same RO what their experience was.

I filed mine in Oct 2009 in Houston. I moved to Washington state before my C&P exams so my claim went to Seattle in Mar2010. All my C&P exams were completed in May2010. I moved back to Texas in June 2010 but did not move my claim because I didn't want to delay it. My claim stalled at the development stage. I had one previous employer not responding back with my record of employment. They finally did in Dec2010 (VA was not willing to move on w/o it). Contacted local Congressman in April 2011 because of pending foreclosure. VA said I still needed release of medical record authorization..total BS!!. It was in my C-file BUT I sent another through Congressman's office anyway. Seattle moved claim to Houston July 2011. Immediately after that it went to the rating stage. Than back to the development stage, than the rating stage again... 1 sep 2011 it was done at raters and now I'm at final authorization & notification stage.....I'm telling you all of this because EVERY claim is different. I filed my claim BEFORE finding this site. If I knew then what I know now, I would have done things differently.

Best wishes to you. Research and get involved is my best advice.

I had my C&P's in Feb09 and didn't get a decision until Sep09, that was fast by some standards from talking to people on this board. The best you can do is wait and every few weeks or so call your VSO. Trust me we all know how nerve racking the wait can be. Good luck.

    • 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:
