Can I get bipolar disorder veterans benefits if I can’t work?
If your bipolar disorder prevents you from working you may be eligible to receive Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits from the Veterans Administration. TDIU benefits are specifically for veterans that have service-connected disabilities that prevent them from working. If you have trouble getting or keeping jobs because of service-connected disabilities, TDIU benefits may be available to you.
TDIU veterans benefits for bipolar disorder can also help veterans that have accommodations at their jobs. If your service-connected disabilities prevent you from standing too long, sitting too long, having to lie down during the day, etc. you might be eligible for TDIU benefits.

There is a link between PTSD and bipolar disorder.
Many times individuals with bipolar disorder may also have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or substance use disorders. Both conditions can relate back to the same PTSD stressor event. There is no specific identifiable cause of bipolar disorder but studies have shown that many things may be the cause.
The National Institute for Mental Health reports that 2.6% of U.S. adults have bipolar disorder. Research suggests that life stressors can change the course of the symptoms and sometimes even trigger an episode. These life stressors can be as simple as a change in the seasons or job stress – or as big as serving in a war.
