Last week my VSO told me on a new TDIU application you list the one disability that prevents you from working (bullet 1)Revise Procedure for Individual Unemployability Ratings (June 17, 2013)
Overview of Changes* VA will no longer presume a claim for TDIU is a claim for increase in all service-connected disabilities. As part of a substantially complete application for TDIU, VA will require that the claimant with multiple service-connected disabilities specify at least one disability that he or she believes causes the unemployability.
* VA will consider the Veteran’s specification of the disabilities that he or she believes cause unemployability to be claims for increased evaluation for those conditions.
* VA will require the claimant complete and submit VA Form 21-8940, Veteran's Application for Increased Compensation Based on Unemployability to substantiate the claim of TDIU.
* VA will administratively deny TDIU claims if VA requests, but the Veteran does not submit, required forms or evidence.
* VA has the flexibility to request either condition-specific Disability Benefits Questionnaires (DBQs) or a general medical DBQ when VA determines that examinations are needed to decide the claim.
* VA will interpret the schedular requirements in 38 C.F.R. 4.16(a) to mean that acombined 70 percent rating is only required if no single disability is rated at 60 percent disabling
