IU confusion

Question

I'm sure this might be in the letter but is it possible to be permanent and Total for a TBI that was only rated at 70 intially in 2010 and again in 2016 but was granted IU in Nov.? Would this make me scheduler this was granted before my other claim which is now pending my DBQ which seperated my symptoms from my PTSD TBI and my chronic AD?

Sure its possible.  Read the letter to find out.  If your letter says you are TDIU, then you are TDIU.  If you are not sure how to interpret your letter, you can post it if you like, covering your private information.  I agree they are often confusing.

If you were granted P&T at an earlier date it would state this in your letter. Look for the part about Chapter 35 benefits and Champ VA. I don't see any reason this would effect your other issues you now have pending, if any are awareded it would just strengthen the P&T status.....you might be awarded 100% without the need for IU.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.
