Tdiu Vs. Td Combined?


sngbm87

Question

I need to clarify this.

What is the difference between TDIU and TD Combined Ratings?

I'm at 80% total and one disability at 60% mental health.

Can I claim up to the 100%? My VRO VSO mentioned this as well as my Patient Advocate. But I don't know the process or what happens along the way?

i don't wana risk them doing something dumb and saying everything is better (Which it's not) and lowering me.

I haven't had consistent records in a while and there have been huge gaps the last 18 months in my medical folder

I've seen been starting again and am in the Philippines. Already in the VA Manila Regional Office's system.

THANKS!

I don't understand your question, as I don't understand what you mean by "TD combined ratings?" If you post the percentages, of your disabilities, that equal your 80%, maybe I can figure out what you mean. Thanks!

There are 2 types.

The first one is 100 percent based on a rating that equals 100 percent.

The second type is TDIU. It is for a veteran who does not meet the 100 percent criteria based on the percentages. They pay the 100 percent rate if the disability prevents a veteran from working.

The criteria is 1 disability at 60 percent or a combined disability level at 70 percent with 1 at 40 percent.

You can ask for an increase and let the va determine IU or schedular.

Remember, Iu you cannot work.

100 Percent Schedular for any condition except for a mental health condition you can work, however 100 percent for a MH condition per the rating schedule says Precludes employment.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
