Choosing when and if to submit Form 21-8940 can be challenging. Submitting this form improperly can cause significant issues to any current claims.
If a veteran is denied TDIU, the timeline for a new decision will depend on several factors including how they appeal and current wait times at the VA.
If the VA rated your disability 100%, you’re likely eligible for other benefits including healthcare coverage and free travel.
If you qualify for TDIU because you can’t work, the VA may owe you thousands of dollars in back pay. This post explains why.
If you can’t work but don’t qualify for TDIU, you may qualify for a special category of benefits that helps some veterans known as “extraschedular TDIU.”
Veterans receiving TDIU must adhere to the VA’s rules about income, but certain forms of work and passive income do not count toward this limit.
