Rexlan I think you would be better off if you did your own research on that; you may find benefits you weren't aware of. Search success stories under forum. Also just do a general search ""VA benefits for TDIU. Then if you can't find an answer, we can address. You learn more if you do the digging rather than someone handing you a limited answer.

OK ...  I have already spent hours on this and this was last resort.  I always do my own research first.  Can't even get an answer from the VSO and VA sites are not stellar -- I will move on.

The very first post on the Forum here will give a rundown of TDUI.  

As for the wife Champ VA does become available once TDUI is granted.

What you are looking for is being considered P & T (Permanent And Total) Disability through VA. Yes, it is hard to get to 100% from 70% but you don't have to. Since you are already rated at 70% TDIU due to PTSD.  If VA determines that your condition is permanent then you can be granted P & T.  If VA determines that your PTSD is worst, you can be awarded 100% scheduler PTSD. Be forewarned this rating could cause VA to determine you are incompetent to manage your own funds/finances.   A veteran can be rated 70% TDIU P & T and the rating would award the veteran the 100% compensation pay.  The P & T would allow CHAMPVA (DEPENDENT HEALTH CARE) DEA(DEPENDENT EDUCATION)  and Dental for the veteran.  Search for form VA 21-8760.

Yes, 100 percent for TDIU should result in additional benefits.  Does the decision letter say "eligibility for Chapter 35 DEA is established?"

Some benefits are state benefits and states are different there.  Some are ok with TDIU, while others want 100 percent P and T schedular (not TDIU), for some benefits.  

Did you get your free life insurance (10,000), and your dental care?

gives a good example in his post,

...after 100% P&T  or even before P&T if they determine your disability will not improve in your life time  and you file for another separate and distinct condition and its direct service connected  or secondary to an already service connected condition and is rated 60% or above  then you should get the SMC S, and any other conditions that may arise in the future and you file and get them service connected   depends on the severity  but you could climb  up the SMC Later  so-to -speak for higher level of compensation...I think for the worst veterans  that have the total compensation,   the amount is like 8,5000/8,885.00 monthly but this veteran is totally bed ridden and missing limbs  and need the aid of another person 24-7     

  I would think that veteran in this condition has no quality of life  left  and just existing..I hope and pray I never get like that..I'd rather die  before I put my family through something like that.

I feel the same way in regards to your last paragraph. Heck, just hand me a loaded firearm and I’ll do the deed myself.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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
