VA Benefits for Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU)

Veterans who cannot work to earn a living may obtain a total disability benefit – even though the VA has rated their service-connected injury or illness at less than 100 percent. The VA allows the full disability benefits through a program known as Individual Unemployability (IU) or Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU).

The TDIU benefit can help veterans who have been unable to achieve a 100 percent disability rating with medical records and doctors’ statements. TDIU eligibility has certain disability rating thresholds the veteran must meet, but the final rating decision focuses on the vet’s inability to maintain “substantially gainful employment.”
