@  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.

I found this Fast/Training Letter you can download see attached..

It talks about UI in detail. Some might want to read it because it answers questions about working,dates of claims, etc...I didn't see this letter in the Hadit Training Letter section so I figure I would share it for others to read. It will answer questions for others and will hopefully give an understanding...

Help. I tried to follow the document but have a hard time concentrating. Can someone answer these questions for me? I really don't understand.

1. I have filed for an increase in two of my disabilities. One is for my back problems which have gotten so bad I havdise been forced to telework from home on a permanent basis. I can barely walk long distances without assistance. I don't drive anymore.

2. I am a federal worker and am considering seriously applying for a medical/disability retirement.

3. Will I qualify for a TDIU?

thanks,

TOP

Top, in my opinion only, if you ultimately apply for and are approved for a medical/disability retirement and it is because of your service connected conditions, you should have a greater than 50% chance of TDIU approval.

Others more knowledgeable may chime in to provide input as well.

Take care of yourself and thanks for your service to the USA!

If you are under FERS you have to apply for OPM disability and for SSDI. Try and get both. OPM is pretty easy to get. As soon as you stop working even on terminal leave then file for TDIU regardless of your percentage rating. I was a federal worker. I was fired due to my disability. I applied for OPM, SSDI and TDIU. I got OPM first and then SSDI. Last but not least I got TDIU. I appled for TDIU when I was 30%. I got bumped up to 70% after I got OPM and SSDI, but was denied TDIU. I appealed and got TDIU. It took about 18 months most of it waiting for TDIU and getting IMO's.

I filed for TDIU, SSDI and OPM the end of June. I received a letter this week telling me I meet the medical requirements for SSDI disability. They now need to see if I meed the non-medical requirements and send me a decision.

Just had my retirement counseling session over the phone yesterday with OPM and mailed the paperwork out yesterday. TDIU is still gathering dust right now.

I also filed for OWCP on the advice of my Union. That paperwork went in a couple of weeks ago. Still waiting on that also.

Rob,
Thanks for posting this TL again.
That forum section could use a little house cleaning
but Nancy does have it in there.
That entire section
"VA Training & Fast letters, Directives, Regulations, Other Guidance Documents"
was a huge undertaking that fanaticbooks (Nancy) volunteered for
and hopefully we can straighten it up a bit more, for simpler location
of this most valuable information.

That was a very informative TL on IU.  I noticed that when you file for IU and you have documentation of a worsened SC it improves your chances a lot.  That's reading between the lines though.  My concern on my IU claim is what if the rater doesn't notice the worsened disability.  From reading on this website I think I would file an NOD, and a 21-526ez with evidence of the worsened disability.  Is that possible?
