Hi Jim, I appreciate your work. If I'm 100% P&T and receiving compensation for housebound, does that make me TDIU? I looked up Ebenefits and it doesn't say anything specific about TDIU. I do currently work full time and I just received this increase. Thank you.

No, that combo doesn't make your benefits to be TDIU. If you're working it's not very likely that you're in receipt of the TDIU benefit. What this means is that you have a 100% rating plus another rating or set of ratings at 60% that bring you the housebound benefit...even if you aren't housebound. Confusing? Yes it is. But this is what we have to deal with from your VA. Good luck sir.
