Will Va Wait For Ssa Disability

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




Just a quick question...typically does the VA wait to see if a veteran gets Social Security Disability before making the decision for TDIU? I submitted my TDIU claim today and have an appointment next week to file the disability claim. If it matters I'm 65 and claiming unemployability for Coronary Heart Disease that's presently rated 60% (SC). Thanks in advance!

No, The VA does not wait on the SSDI results. If you get approved for VA 100% or SSDI, you can always use either as medical evidence to support the other claim. Good luck

An 60% rating for coronary heart disease alone qualifies as an single disability therefore making you eligible for tdiu. This is if indeed your disability has an effect on your ability to work. ..

56: The 60% CAD may or may not be adequate for IU. Check out posts regarding difference between IU and SSDI qualifications. SSD is an all or nothing award, where as the IU is a percentage deal. If you have Medical and Employment Councilors opining that you are precluded due to your CAD from engaging in any type of "Gainful Employment Income" including Sedentary Employment. The age and being out of work really doesn't factor in. If your out of work and can't work due entirely to your CAD, different story. It all comes down to your SC Medical, Education background, and your ability to earn "Gainful Employment Income." If your 65, that figure is about $11,400.00 per year and is based on the US Census Poverty Level Income for (1) person. Under 65, it's about $12,350.00 per year.

I was 90% PTSD,CAD and SA and was denied IU back in 12. Got a Denial letter from VA Voc Rehab indicating my SC's precluded me from completing Voc Rehab. Sealed the Deal at DRO Hearing 6/14.

Usually Social Security is much faster than VA but there are exceptions.

  • 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.


    • 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.

    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
