TDIU never applied for?


Kybar

Question

So I got the call from my attorney the other day that a decision has been made on my appeal. Upon a quick pop into VA.gov it shows TDIU under closed and granted. I never applied for TDIU. My attorney said it was remanded with my claim from the BVA?  A2DFDDBE-3138-44CE-BDF2-20577A1826D7.thumb.png.1d6d9967a65346ba939ba74ae7627320.png

Kybar   Great new to you. Congratulations!!! Now, a word of caution: wait to get your confirming disability letter. In writing! I take it you are not working now. You should consider SSDI if you haven't already started the process. Do your homework on SMC's, special monthly compensation, also. You may be now or in the future eligible for additional comp. Your dependents will have benefits also. The money hitting your bank account can take a while. Again, congrats.

I have still been working. I miss a lot of time and I am working against the doctors recommendations however I have continued to work part time since my third surgery in 2015. I never even applied for TDIU is what caught me off guard. The BVA added it on per my attorney.  And I know what you are saying about waiting things out. Nothing has been updated and rating has not increased yet.

I must be miss understanding this...you say BVA Added the IU ? or your attorney added it? 

if you get IU your not supposed to be able to work  but being rated 100% maybe you can?

  but here is the kicker   why would you want IU if your all your SERVICE CONNECTED CONDITIONS add up to the 100%

I never heard of this  given IU this way

.100% rating for Individual unemployability

If your ratings total up to 100%  yes you do have a choice  who is telling you you don't?

If they give you the IU at a 100% rating  then you can't work.   or if you have 100% s.c. conditions   the IU pays the same as 100%.

If I was you I would sure ask to be 100% and not IU, The only advantage with IU is if your sc conditions only combined to or under the 100 %  &say 90%  then they infer the IU and the SMC are usually there  like SMC S House Bound Because you can't leave home to work,  you can also get your SSDI.  But you can get  your SSDI with the 100% stand alone rating and also work..the basic difference is 100% pays the same as IU but with IU Your not suppose to be working  opposed to the 100% scheduler rating where you can work and no problem...Veterans that get the IU and still work take a big big chance on get the IU Proposal to reduce.

Buck, from what I read, he is/was currently only 20%

Then, he got granted a bunch of stuff plus TDIU.

So, we really don't know anything until he gets the letter, and only then.  I wouldn't take anyone's word or va.gov screenshot until I seen the letter myself.

All his new ratings could ad up to 30, 40, 50, through 90, and they gave him TDIU too.

Or he could be at 100 schedular, and then I don't know regards TDIU.

Letter, letter, letter, until then,

Hamslice

But, 100%, either way, is better than 20%, everyday!!

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
