Question

Hello Vets, Finally received notification. Increased from 80% to 90% but denied tdiu apparently because of a non-definitive c&p. Should I try to tackle ssdi first? I was denied last year and was waiting on this claim to resolve before going any further. I have attached the ruling. Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks, Bro' Gate

Get a medical opinion that you can't work and appeal this decision. You could also apply for vocational rehabilitation and if they find that you can't be rehabilitated that would help with TDIU. You should apply for SSDI anyway if you can't work, but don't wait for SSDI to file an appeal on the TDIU. You can do more than one thing at a time. If you get an IMO you could ask for reconsideration of your TDIU denial. You need evidence that you can't work. Medical evidence is best.

I love it I see cases they deny IU when the vet has SSDI and now when they do not. Appeal the SSDI ruling, many states you have to do this 3 times.

I did not see any place in the write-up of the neuropathy and how it may keep you from working. I have worked with some vets where it keeps them from walking long and some that can not work with their hands due to it. Look at all of your disabilities and their secondary issues and make sure they addressed them I see they did miss the one. at 90% you need to send in the NOD and point out just how bad you are.

If you had write up from your past jobs send them in as proof you do not work well with other. If your neuropathy is now in your hands, tell them that and you can not do that type of work. small fiber neuropathy will take special testing to find and Dx. look it up. Many gulf war vets have it that is where I learned of for I have it.

I only scaned an edited version. I had a total of 10 issues with only sucessful resolution in 4 items. I have neuropathy at 20% in lower extremities both left and right with dm2 to include pn of the bilateral upper extremities. My claim for gerd and barrets esophagus was denied pending proof of secondary connection to anxiety/ptsd.
