  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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


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.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
