Tdiu Increase

Question

Hello Everyone,

I am new to the game. I received 70% for schizophenia. I submitted a claim for unemployability, in August of 2011 that is presently in the development stage. My claim for schizophrenia was submitted in October, 2010 and an increase of 70% was granted in August 2011. In August 2011, I also submitted a claim for unemployabilty that is presently in the development stage. In the meantime, my disability has worsened. At this point, can I submit a claim for an increase in my diability? And how will it effect both claims?

Welcome to Hadit.

I would wait for the decision on your TDIU request and if you have medical proof your condition has worsened send it in asap.

Be sure and work on your treatment it will help your claim.

Good Luck

Veterans deserve real choice for their health care.

The VA should have inferred TDIU when you were rated 70% for schizophrenia. Did they send you the official form to fill out for TDIU? Have you applied for SSDI?

When you are rated at 70% for a single disability does the VA have a duty to infer or not infer TDIU if you are not working?

Thanks for your imput.

They did not send the TDIU in my packet. I located the form online and submitted. Rue
