Increase in Current Disability Rating versus TDIU: Advantages and Disadvantages

Question:

Hi there. I'm a disabled vet and I currently have an 80% disability rating (70% for PTSD and 10% for Tinnitus). My PTSD symptoms have become markedly worse over the last six months and I'm no longer able to work. So my question is should I apply for an increase in my current disability rating or apply for individual unemployability and what are the advantages and disadvantage of applying for one or the other. Thx, Randy
