If your VA Service Connected Disability keeps you from being able to work than it can go to 100%. Either schedular or by TDIU. Its not an easy thing but if you are getting SS for it maybe possible.

50% is the max for migraines. However, if you are unemployable you should file for individual unemployability. Your 50% rating will be the same but you'll be paid at 100% if approved.

Hello everyone!

I am new to Hadit.com and this is my first post, but I have been enjoying reading all of the posts here!

I am going through a claim for Individual Unemployability for migraines,

Yes we can be awarded 100% TDIU if you have SC migraines and the record shows very frequient, prostrating, and long duration migraines that keep you from gainful employment, but it has been easier saying that than going through the 8 year battle for it!

I suggest the following:

1.) get a copy of your C-file

2.) get a copy of your Service medical records

3.) get a copy of your VA medical record

4.) get copies of all civilian medical records

5.) make regular visits to your physcian for your migraines, and keep copies of the medical record.

6.) Get a Service Officer to open a claim for you, and work through them, route everything through them.

7.) Do not quit for anything! I left my claim alone for five years...that's lost money for my family.

I would also research BVA files for other cases pertaining to migraines and gleen information that can aid your case.

I hope that you decide to go for it, and are awarded what you desearve...thanks for your service!

  • How to get your questions answered...


    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.


    • 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.


    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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
