I'm sure it doesn't hurt. You're headed in the right direct IMO.

A SSDI award is ,in essense, an independent medical opinion.

If the award is solely for your SC conditions, that is good evidence to send with a TDIU form. I think it is question # 18 on the TDIU form , check Yes and then make sure they understand you mean you receive SSDI solely for you SC conditions.

If the SSDI award predates the TDIU claim by one year or less it is possible they will give you retro TDIU back to the SSDI award date.(Because that is when entitlement "arose")

Thanks for the info. I just had the c&p exam with a mental health examiner for the iu claim. It took 3 hours or so and i had to take a true/false test on the computer then he asked me the same ?s verbally. So very different than previous mental health exams bc they took like 15 minutes. Kind of has me worried.

I am currently at 90% for ptsd and a bunch of other conditions as well. I filed for TDUI back in May of this year and my claim is currently in the PFD phase on ebenefits. I attached the ssdi award letter along with my TDUI form and I hope it makes a bigger impact on the decision soon. I have been reading a lot of responses from other vets and it seems like a lot of folks are getting the TDUI forms mailed to them because they were 70% for one condition. I had to file for mine once I found on this great website called www.hadit.com. Ill keep everyone posted and things move along. Good luck

It also may help your IU claim if you have a denial letter from Voc Rehab stating you are unemployable. JMO

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a 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.
