If your service connected then by all means file a claim for increase (If you can't work due to your service connected disability's),,They can give you a more higher rating for your disability and probably rate you at 100% and You ask for the TDIU P/T.......

In my opinion I'd go get a IMO and submit that & if your denied file a NOD or ask for a hearing at your RO office...sometimes I think the people that work at the RO Just need something to do and they toll with us vets that need help So go look them eye in person most of the time thats better than just doing all this by mail.(with return receipt)...unless your not able to travel? then submit your IMO ask for TDIU P/T your service connected disability is keeping you from working.

Good Luck Buddy!
