What are “full VA Disability Benefits”?
Many veterans are currently receiving over $2,906.83 a month in VA Disability Benefits. Some disabled veterans also receive extra VA Disability Benefits for dependent children and parents. Depending on the severity of your disabilities, how to get your full VA Disability Benefits can differ. Many disabled veterans do not realize that you can receive full VA Disability Benefits in two ways: (1) by obtaining a 100% VA Disability rating or (2) obtaining Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits. Both a 100% VA Disability rating and TDIU benefits, pay the same amount monthly.
What is the difference between a 100% VA Disability rating and TDIU Benefits?
100% VA Disability Rating: If you wish to receive a 100% VA Disability rating you will have to use the combined rating table. That means you are going to have to total up all your disabilities and their ratings. Together, they will give you your combined VA Disability rating. A 100 percent Veterans Benefits rating is strictly determined by the severity of your disabilities.
TDIU Benefits: TDIU Benefits are for veterans who can no longer work because of service-connected disabilities. TDIU VA Disability Benefits are not tied to your VA Disability rating. The Veterans Administration is going to consider all your impairments and make a ruling depending on whether or not you can work. TDIU Benefits pay the same as a 100% VA Disability rating, but the two are determined separately.
You may be able to increase your VA Disability Benefits if your conditions have worsened.
If your mental and physical conditions have become worse since you were rated, you may want to increase your VA Disability rating. You will have to apply to increase VA Disability Benefits. You are going to have to show the Veterans Administration how your mental and physical impairments have worsened since your last rating decision.
This is common; many veterans must apply to increase their VA Disability rating. Most medical conditions do worsen over time and the Veterans Administration recognizes that. You will need medical evidence to help prove why you are entitled to an increase. If you are not treating with a medical professional for your disabilities, we highly suggest you start now. Providing medical documentation is the best way to obtain your full VA Disability Benefits.
