Veterans who can’t work:
Apply for TDIU.
You’ve always been able to support yourself and your family, but something – or everything – has changed.
You don’t have the strength or stamina you once had. Maybe you can’t stay awake on the job or have frequent migraines that send you home in the middle of your shift. Or you can’t get out of bed in the morning because of anxiety and depression.
If you can’t work because of service-connected conditions, the VA owes you TDIU (total disability individual unemployability) benefits.
You earned it. You and your family deserve it.
Why apply for VA TDIU benefits?
You could receive more than $3,737.85 a month.
Total disability based on individual unemployability (TDIU) pays the highest monthly amount for VA disability benefits. That’s $3,737.85 a month for a veteran with no dependents – the same compensation given for a 100% VA disability rating.
You may be closer to TDIU than you think.
If you can’t work because of your service-connected conditions, you don’t have to reach a 100% rating to be paid at the 100% rate. You qualify for TDIU if at least one condition is rated at least 60% or if you have a combined rating of 70% with one condition rated at least 40%. Your conditions could add up to a rating for VA individual unemployability benefits.
Your TDIU back pay adds up fast while you wait for a VA decision.
The VA may not grant your TDIU claim on your first try. This means filing an appeal, which can take years. Back pay for a successful TDIU claim can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
