@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

125. What is the 20-year rule concerning the protection of my rating?

Protected Evaluations Under 38 CFR 3.951 and 3.952. Care must be exercised to avoid violation of the protective provisions of 38 CFR 3.951 and 3.952. Measure the 20-year period of 38 CFR 3.951(B) from the earliest effective date of the combined or individual evaluation(s). For purposes of determining whether benefits were received for a continuous period of 20 years, include periods during which recoupment or deduction applied to an award. If a retroactive increase under 38 CFR 3.105(a) results in a veteran having been rated for 20 years or longer at a certain level, that evaluation is protected under 38 CFR 3.951(B) and may not be reduced in the absence of a showing of fraud. A veteran who renounces entitlement to disability benefits will not accrue protection under 38 U.S.C. 110 and 38 CFR 3.951(B). Ratings for other than compensation purposes (ancillary benefits) do not accrue protection under 38 U.S.C. 110 and 38 CFR 3.951(B). Protection under the provisions of either 38 CFR 3.951 or 3.952 of a total rating or disability evaluation(s) does not preclude reduction to a hospital rate under 38 CFR 3.552 or discontinuance of compensation under 38 CFR 3.557.

Okay, now the age old question of "if you are TDIU for over twenty years is it protected, and can you work"?

NO!

That would constitute fraud, and the 20 year rule would NOT cover that.

TDIU means you cannot work, gainfully, under any circumstances, without notifying VA, and thereby losing TDIU.


THAT IS THE LEGAL ANSWER.
