Are there benefits for veterans that can’t work?
Yes! Benefits for veterans that can’t work are available from the Veterans Administration. Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits are designed to help veterans that can’t get work or have trouble keeping a job. Many veterans have mental and physical impairments that prevent them from keeping gainful employment.
Can I receive Social Security and Veterans Benefits?
Yes! Many veterans don’t know that they can receive both Social Security benefits and Veterans Administration benefits at the same time. They are separate benefit systems and you will need to apply with both agencies. The Social Security Administration and the Veterans Administration each have different qualifications for their disability benefits.
Who can receive unemployability benefits?
Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits are for veterans that have mental or physical impairments that prevent them from working. Your mental and physical impairments must be considered service-connected. That means that your mental or physical impairments must have been caused or aggravated by your time in the military. Veterans that wish to receive Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits payments must have been considered active-duty at one point in their military career. Your discharge status can affect your eligibility for TDIU benefits.
Should I apply for benefits for veterans that can’t work?
If you can’t work and don’t feel as though you will be able to return to work, you should consider filing for benefits. You should submit evidence proving your disabilities. We highly suggest you contact a veterans disability benefits attorney to help. If you were denied years ago you can still re-apply.
How much can I receive in unemployability benefits?
Veterans that can no longer work and obtain TDIU benefits may be eligible to receive over $2,900 a month from the Veterans Administration. For veterans with dependent parents or children, there are extra monthly benefits available. Many veterans will find they have missing back pay, which can be a substantial amount. Sometimes, there are years of missing back pay and the veteran is owed lots of money they did not even know about.
What if I was already denied unemployability benefits?
If you were previously denied benefits from the Veterans Administration, you have the option to appeal that decision. TDIU benefits appeals can be hard and we highly suggest you contact a veterans benefits lawyers to help you. Veterans that are denied TDIU benefits have up to one year to appeal the Veteran Administration’s denial. If you do not appeal within one year, you can reapply for VA benefits.
I think I’m rated too low, what can I do?
The Veterans Administration makes lots of mistakes and many veterans are rated too low. Veterans that are rated too low can appeal a low-rating from the Veterans Administration. Low ratings are common from the Veterans Administration and lots of veterans successfully have their VA disability rating increased.
Is it hard to get unemployability benefits?
According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, there are around 573,000 veterans that are unemployed. Because the Veterans Administration is overloaded and has trouble processing VA claims, we highly suggest you hire a veterans disability lawyer. Some veterans get stuck appealing denials and low ratings for years because they keep submitting the wrong evidence or don’t get doctors reports. A veterans disability lawyer can help you through the VA claim process and will submit the evidence needed to prove your claim.
How much does a VA Disability lawyer cost?
Woods and Woods never charges a penny unless we win your claim. Our fee is a percentage of your backpay and case expenses. If you lose your VA disability claim, you owe us nothing. Woods and Woods never bills by the hour or asks for money upfront. We never charge for a phone call.
