  • 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.

supplemental claim for reconsideration of rating /TDIU

Question

I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

Since your appeal is based on IU and increase for PTSD, they can possibly increase your base rating to %70 and apply IU, if the merits of PTSD has prevented you from working. 

Sometimes a vet will get the increase to %70 (good news right) then infer your IU for a C&P exam. Unless your IME is real solid.

MY IME for my appeal was so solid that they just gave me %100 P&T and bypass the rest. Didn’t expect it but, it happen.

I don't have PTSD but I do have a 70% MH rating and I am having a very hard time getting TDIU. Did the doctor at the exam state you couldn't work? Maybe you will be lucky like the above poster.

My independent medical opinion stated i was not to work and my work history and irs earnings report shows how little i actually work. if not and they deny my tdiu, i already have a lawyers group ready to appeal. i just want it all to be over soon but i'll keep fighting, not safe for me to work, for me and customers.
