Tdiu Claim Help

Question

Would it help if I applied for SS disability due to my Parkinson's disease? I get only a small SS check now, and this comes from a small business that I have owned. My SS was offset because I retired from Federal Service. I really don't care if it increases my monthly SS check or not, I want to know if it would help my TDIU claim.

Being unable to be employed could help you get SSDI, however remember as long as the Parkinson's Disease can be attributable to your service connection that is why you could get TDIU. SS can grant on any illiness's or diseases they see is attributable to your incapacity to be employed, but VA only cares about Service Connection. You don't have anything to lose by application to SSA.

Generally, NSC conditions can't be considered towards TDIU. If you are rated for PTSD, you could apply for an increase. Or you could try to SC your Parkinson's? jmo

The main advantage of SSD is if you are under retirement age Social Security pays using the retirement age so if you took early retirement you would not be getting the full check.
