Question

Just got the call from my DAV Service Officer. Granted TDIU back to April 2009 when I retired on FERS Disability. I'ts been battle to the BVA in 2012 which ended in a remand and today the remand got completed. I am so relieved it i finally over. Never give up if you feel you have a valid claim. It took me almost 8 years to get this claim finalized. This site has helped me in so many ways! Thank You!

WOW, and this is GREAT News.....relax and enjoy.Geez, I am surprised it took so long with the FERS...it took my neighbor only 7-8 months after he got FERs .But then again they really low balled him with 10% and as a 20 year retiree, that VA amount is deducted from the retirement check.

He says he gets SSDI solely for the same 10% but has not filed a TDIU claim yet....after about 6 years..or more 

I couldnt get him to understand that his TDIU EED, if what he said is true as to SSDI, is the date he files the TDIU claim.....oh well..........................................

Berta, My FERS disability took only about 3 weeks to be approved. My start date on FERS was March 21, 2009. So the EED of my TDIU is April 2009.  The main reason it took me so long is that I filed a claim for Diabetes along with complications and TDIU at the same time. They denied the Diabetes even though the C&P examiner stated "More than Likely" which was in my favor. The rater stated in the SOC that the C&P doctors opinion had no probative value. Went in front of VLJ in D.C. for a BVA hearing in June 2012. He granted my Diabetes which then brought other issues in to play such as my Gastroperesis, Neuropathy etc.etc. The Judge remanded the IU and waited to get a C&P which I had last December. Never heard anything so I took the advice on here about calling the "(202)" number for really old claims. I did and Presto DAV called me today with the good news.

HUH?  Sometimes I think I have seen it all. Boy they even went against their own C & P doc? 

Unbelievable.......... the VA needs Divine Intervention....they are so fubared.

Was this a P & T award?

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
