Recently I filed some claims.Filed for increase on my depression.Awarded 70% up from 30%.There are about 6 classification for depression.Mine was next to the top one.

Second filed for sciatica on right leg secondary to back.Awarded 20%in this.

On my depression,that is secondary to back problems.

My question is I was not filing for IU,just an increase.

I have a total rating of 120%,payable at 80% disability.

Was not given IU,so do I appeal their decision or do I just file for IU

You can only appeal a decision which has been adjuticated.  Since it sounds like you have never applied for TDIU, you need to apply for it, yes.  

However, IF one or more of your doctors documented that you were unemployed, then this statement may be used to "infer" tdiu.  

Nowadays, you have to file the tdiu form.  

Go ahead and file.
