TDIU Effective Date



Hello everyone,

I have a quick question concerning TDIU. My last employer terminated me because of my service-connected disability. If approved for TDIU, will the VA back pay me to the date that I signed the TDIU form and submitted my claim, or will they back pay me to the date that I put on the TDIU form that I last worked?

My VSO initially told me that I would be paid from the date I last worked. Then on another day he told me that I would be paid from the date I submitted the claim. So I just want to get the correct answer. 

Thanks for any replies.

Effective dates are hard to kind of figure out and we would need more information. When was the last day you worked? When did you sign your TDIU form? How far from the date of your employment did you inform the VA and was it the date of your TDIU form?

Short answer:  We dont know without more information. 

Longer answer:  Your effective date is the later of the "facts found" (the date the doc said you were unable to work due to sc conditions) or the date of claim, "with some exceptions".  A few of the exceptions are is it a claim for increase, did you get out of the service within one year, are you a Nehmer Vet, and a few others.  You can read the regulation and see if you are eligible for some of the exceptions
