  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

TDIU question

Question

I'm pretty sure there is information regarding my question somewhere but I'm still little confused on what is the difference between TDIU and P&T?

I thought when you are granted TDIU you are automatically 100% and your kids and spouse are subject to chapter 35 benefits? and P&T just means it's permanent?

You can be awarded IU but not PT, if you can print out a commissary letter or that you are permanent and total or if they included Chapter 35 paperwork in your award those are all indications that you are PT, as is no future exams required.  Sometimes is almost seems to be written in code.  If you aren't sure go on ebenefits and see if you can choose permanent and total when you are making your letter or if you can print a commissary letter.

so TDIU doesn't get you chapter 35 benefits for your kids and spouse until it becomes P&T?

It should be on your Award Letter if your P&T And they usually send most of the forms to fill out for chapter35 and other benefits.

b/c if your P&T you will know it.

See this post for clarity.  Yes, TDIU can be permanent or total:
