I'm Confused About Td Combined Vs. Tdiu?


sngbm87

Question

So what is the difference or how does it work again?

TDIU Filing vs a Totally Disabled Combined Claim?

I'm Total of 80% right now and have one disability at 60% mental health.

Can I file or what is the process? Can someone list the order of what happens or could happen? I haven't worked for 1 year now but I don't want TDIU.

I just want the TD Combined.

Since you don't want the TDIU, you don't have any problem except for the fact that it is almost impossible to reach 100% with combined ratings. I have heard of people with over 160% combine disabilities which can't reach 100% compensation because of the formula VA have to rate the combine disabilities. I believe that is one of the reasons they have TDIU. If you become unable to work due to your disabilities, you can apply for it but, since you don't want that, then is of no concern to you. What I am telling you is with the little knowledge I have. There are great moderators and knowledgable people here that can explain it much,much better than I can. God bless U, always.

I dont want to be nosey, but why dont you want TDIU? Unless you think you can go back to work, then why not?

If you did go back to work, and you got TDIU, just simply tell them and you would still get your 80 percent plus whatever you earn

on your job.
