How does Permanent and Total Disability VA Benefits Work?
If you are approved for VA Benefits, the Veterans Administration is going to give you a disability rating. If the Veterans Administration finds that your mental and physical conditions have no way of improving, they will give you a permanent rating. If you do not have a permanent rating, the VA has the ability to review your rating from time-to-time and could possibly lower your rating.
However, just because you don’t have the “permanent” rating, doesn’t mean the VA will automatically review your VA Disability rating – the VA is inconsistent. That probably doesn’t come as a shock to you.
What if I can’t work from service-connected disabilities?
Lots of veterans cannot work from service-connected disabilities – you are not alone. Veterans who have both mental and physical conditions from service are particularly unemployable. The combination of both mental and physical conditions can prevent you from obtaining meaningful employment. Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) Benefits are specifically designed to help veterans who can no longer work.
We warn you: trying to get TDIU Benefits on your own can be very difficult. The Veterans Administration has very strict laws on eligibility and process. That means you cannot miss deadlines and you are going to have to know VA Disability law.
Permanent and Total Disability VA Benefits Pay Some Veterans Over $2,900 a Month

Many of the clients of Woods & Woods VA Disability Benefits Attorneys also receive back pay when their claim is approved. This is the money the VA should have been paying you – which dates back to your effective date. That is not necessarily the date you applied. Many veterans find their effective dates were years before they ever applied.
