Tdiu-Future Review

Question

Just logged into Ebenefits and it states this on my benefit summary letter:

You are not considered to be permanently disabled due to your service-connected disabilities because your case is scheduled for review on: November 01, 2016

and

You are not considered to be permanently disabled due to your service-connected disabilities at this time because you are scheduled for a future reduction in rating on: November 01, 2016

Was rated TDIU on 11/01/2011

Called and was told I would receiving a letter from the DRO explaining it. I advised that I did not receive my yearly review letter from the VA, so I downloaded and printed my own, faxed and mailed it. He said they stopped taking that letter a couple of years ago in most states, first I heard of this.

Anyone else ever get anything similar to this ? Something sounds wrong here to me. Maybe I'm just paranoid and need advice...

You shouldn't worry too much right now. Sounds like the VA is telling you that you are good to go til 2016. Then they will re-examine you to see if your sc'd conditions have improved or gotten worse. Between now and then, if your conditions worsen, file for an increase and P&T.

Johnjjr,

Thanks for your reply. I have not been able to sleep because of this. The 8008271000 number rep would not go into this over the phone because I don't have the letter yet from the DRO. I filed an 1151 against my psychiatrist for highly over medicating me on Xanax for years, causing a severe Grand Mal Seizure disorder back in 2006. The case was dismissed because I refused to give them the names of the staff that got me away from the doctor. It was my word against his, and I felt the people that got me away from him saved my life and was not going to jeopardize their careers for saving me. Then this comes up two days ago and it made me paranoid as hell. My conditions have gotten worse, and I filed for Bi-polar secondary to my PTSD rating three weeks ago. They already have me scheduled at the WSOPC for my C&P exam next Friday. This is a fast track claim, but they have never been this fast on anything.

Keep sending in your employment questionnaire! I would appeal the denial of Chapter 35.

They actually told you that they stopped sending the letters? They are baiting you into not sending it back.

Per VA the only IU have you been working letters are for pensions only. Not VA comp.

I have learned not to trust them and send everything in. The guy I spoke with said each state was different. When I asked why this was not told to me before now, he advised they have 54 different offices and you never know which region your going to get when dialing the 800 number. My yearly letter was sent out last year in October. By November 1, I had still not received it, so I downloaded it , faxed and mailed it myself a month ago. When I called last week they said it could take up to 75 days to scan it in the system. Then I get the guy telling me North Carolina stopped sending the letter. I stopped trusting them long ago and cover my 6 always.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
