This is a hypothetical question but it could happen. I am awarded 100% Sc (true) but I am not P and T, what if VA decide to reduce my claim (hypothetical) to say maybe 70%, can I then file for TDIU, if so would I have to repay any money given to me by VA? The only money recieved is from the 100% Sc. I can't work and I am pending SSD................... Thanks for the input...........

Is it a combined 100%? If the 70% meet the criteria for IU then yes you can file. There would be no reason to pay the VA back for monies received as you will be due processed before the reduction. Hopes this helps.

According to the VBM if the VA did reduce you to 70% then they should consider TDIU if you can't work.
