    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

Tdiu Decision In 30 To 60 Days After C&p, Good Or Bad?


After I completed my C&P exam, the NP advised me I would have a decision in 30 to 60 days on TDIU claim. From joining this very informative web, I have found out that an increase may be awarded and the TDIU denied. If so, I will file an NOD. My question: Is that good or bad to receive a statement of that kind from a NP. Was it lip service, or just a way to end an exam on a positive note? I do not know. This is the first C&P exam I ever had that when I walked out of that room I had no idea if it was good or bad. The NP was professional but very secretive. The NP was precise and positive in one area and totally negative in another. I was in a complete fog. On my other C&P exams I knew when I walked out that I had it or not. I am pretty good at figuring people out, but this one has me. Anybody out there had any experience with this? Or, am I in the same place as everyone else.

If this C & P was done at a VAMC did you make a formal request for copy of it with the Records Access officer ,before you left?

"The NP was precise and positive in one area and totally negative in another."

What was the area the NP seemed negative in?

When you got the 70% SC, what did VA say as to why they didn't consider you for TDIU at that time?

I am surprised that a NP, who doesn't work in a VARO, and isnt going to rate the claim, could make a guess on the timeframe of your decision.

I got my exam results with totaled 84 pages. Comments on sedentary were a bit inconclusive in the way it was stated. But the final statement advised that due to my worsening upper PN and carpal tunnel sedentary (even selective) was not possible. The PN I think may have just been ending the whole day (which was actually about 5 hrs) with a positve view. And when I got my 70 % there was no statement in my rating that stated why or why not I was not considered TDIU. The who award was only about 2 pages, and a statement they had revised thier procedures in preparing award letters, but the review was done the same way.

A NP is just guessing about when you will or will not get TDIU. They don't make the rating decision.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
