    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Question

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.

    • 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.
