Sorry, that is a tricky question, so I must give you a tricky answer. It really depends on the effective dates.  Like GB said, if your TDIU claim is dated prior to your granted appeals then your appea

Clack1962 Short answer, yes. If you win others that were in the cycle and your TDIU comes thru first, you still get the others. In fact, if your additional grants put you at a combined disability rating of 95%, you can get 100 scheduler, which in some respects is even better.

Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. You probably are aware getting to 95+% is a tough row to hoe if your at 80%. Try to work on the higher value claims if they come back denied. For example, if you don't have any MH disabilities, or, if they are rated low value, maybe pain is a secondary disability to go after. It is considered a MH condition. Sleep apnea is another common high value if it applies to you. Can be secondary to MH, prescribed meds, etc. Post on Hadit and maybe we can offer some advice especially after your decisions come in. It's a long battle, but it can be won.

      I have a question that perplexes me. I am 100% Permanent and Total for a total of 13 disabilities. I had a total knee replacement after many years of dealing with my arthritic 10% rated knee. i had the TKR in January 2020. I didn't tell regional office anything because I believe in let sleeping dogs lie quietly. However I do know that the VA hospital where I had surgery let the regional office know I had surgery for a service connected knee. I understand that the minimum rating after being reevaluated is 30%. Will they automatically contact me at the 13 month mark for a C&P exam? If so, are they limited to look at the knee only?  Will they service connect for the TKR related scar? Just curious! I was already 100% so nothing changed after the surgery although if rated different I could have 100% total temporary perhaps given. I do not want to screw what I already have so any advice what or how this works will help me.

      I need some guidance or suggestions from the experts.
      I am currently at 100% schedular (temporary, not P&T). My higher Service connections are:
      Dermatitis with Psoriasis (also claimed as psoriasis guttate, eczema/dermatitis)    = 60% Migraine including migraine variants - also claimed as decreased concentration    = 50% Residuals of traumatic brain injury (TBI)    = 40% Insomnia disorder - also claimed as sleep disorder and insomnia    10% and a dozen other 10% ratings for tinnitus, arthritis, degenerative disc/joint disease/lumbar spine, and as well as injuries to every joint. I submitted a PTSD claim and it was moving right along and I'd already completed all C&P exams for it as well as the ones for another set of RFE claims the VA submitted for three other conditions (Migraines, TBI, Insomnia) that are still temporary ratings.
      Now, two of the three RFE claims show as complete and the VA website says they sent a letter; however, one of the conditions (TBI) got moved over to my PTSD claim and the status went from the exams being complete and in the last phase or so, with a projected completion date sometime this month to December!  On top of that, the VA started a claim for "IU" on my behalf without asking me, so they also added the couple of VA forms required with the due date of 7/31/2020.
      The IU part might not sound bad, but I was already 100% (temporary unfortunately) without the PTSD service connection and I believe I made a compelling case for at least 50% of that, if not 70% as I met most of that criteria.  So, I've always heard, read, seen in videos, and even been told directly that when someone is at 100%, albeit temporary, it's not wise to apply for TDIU since it pays the same AND the VA may then reduce other percentages.  Also, as you know, it can be easier for them to later remove the TDIU classification for technicalities.  Lastly, those forms are the worst part for me.  I DO NOT want to have to fill those out, especially the one you have to bring to your former employer.  My company was located off-base, so they never even observed my daily performance.  The military supervisors who were over me have since moved on as it's been over a year.  Finally, I usually burned up PTO to cover all the time away for appts and physical therapy, which they knew about, but as for PTSD issues I was going through, I sure as hell did not disclose to them as it was none of their business, super private, embarrassing, and I would have been worried about my security clearance!
      The only thing about canceling the IU is that I don't want it to look like I AM capable of pursuing "gainful employment."  I would just definitely prefer to retain my 100%, which should be even stronger with a PTSD condition/connection added to my current list.
      What is your take on all this?  Do you know if there's a way that I can have them close or remove the IU portion and the required forms?  Besides not wanting to apply for that or do the forms, I also do not want this to hold the rest of my claim(s) up or give them an easier way to assign lower percentages. 
      Any help would be much appreciated.

      Hello all,
      I've been a big fan of this site and would like to thank all for the great insights pertaining to all.
      My questions follows..
      I filed a NOD in receipt on July 30th 2018 as va.gov showed. It was for a DRO review. I filed for 3 contentions for increase and TDIU. Which always shows as 2 different claims on VA.GOV site.
      My current rating before NOD was at 90%. For total of 12 rated issues.
      Recently this week showed up on VA.gov and ebenefits as granted 100 TDIU but on ebene I did the math..
      50%, 10%x5, 20%x4, 30%x2.. This should add up to 95% which makes it 100 schedular so I thought... Below are what I saw from ebene. I'm just confused coz if 100 by schedular the TDIU should be moot.. Also, my disability on ebene shows 100 disabled. I want to have 100 schedular. Haven't received the brown envelope yet with decision letter. No retro pay yet.
      I'm bad at pasting all info from ebene on this post...
      Ebene benefit summary breaks down with checks:
      1. You have one or more serv related disabilities. YES
      2. Your combined serv connected disabilities are 100%.
      3. Your current monthly award is:  effective date of last change amount and date.. $4158.32 / 12/01/2019.
      4. You are being paid at 100% due to your unemployability due to your service disability. YES
      5. You are considered t&p so let due to your serv connection. Effective dates of your T&P disability dates are 10/07/2017.
      6. You are being paid SMC due to your service type severity..etc... YES
      Everything here looks like tdiu 100 but my total math on my ebene shows 95 which us 100. My retro is another thing..if schedular..it seems as since my increase on the NOD was effective on 11/27/2019 that made me 100 by va math and the TDIU stated above was for 10/07/2017 effective.
      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance.

      Hello had a few questions.  Husband was made 100% p&t Aug 2017 but he has been medically retired since Jan 2013 and been collecting Va and CRSC since then. 
      Well today we logged in and it now says retirement pay adjustment AEW dtd it’s in status under review. What all does that mean? Thank you everyone for your service.

      Do they qualify for a retiree ID?
      Do they qualify for PX & Commissary privileges? 
      Do they qualify for state benefits for being rated 100% P&T? Even if their DD-214 states Other Than Honorable?

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
