Assisting Veterans Who Are Unable To Work

When a service-connected injury or illness leaves you unable to work any type of gainful employment, you are likely eligible for “Total Disability Individual Unemployability” (TDIU) compensation. In gratitude for your tremendous sacrifice, the government will pay you monetary benefits to cover your inability to work. Qualifying Veterans can obtain both TDIU benefits and Social Security Disability benefits simultaneously

Our team at Veterans Advocacy Law Group can help you navigate the often frustrating process of applying for TDIU benefits, no matter your circumstances. As a service-disabled, Veteran-owned firm, we do things for Veterans, by Veterans. Our National Veterans unemployment attorneys understand how the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) decides these cases, and we will handle your claim with the compassion and conviction it deserves. Our top priority is getting you the benefits you need as quickly and painlessly as possible, and we have the skills, experience, and resources needed to provide you with the best available advocacy.

Who Qualifies for Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) Benefits?

To be eligible for TDIU benefits, you must be a veteran of the United States military who is no longer able to maintain gainful employment due to a qualifying condition. This condition may be a physical injury or mental impairment that was caused or exacerbated by your military service. 

Your service-connected condition must prevent you from keeping or securing any type of substantially gainful employment. In other words, you may qualify if you are unable to hold a job that pays you enough to support yourself. If you can technically work a minimum wage position – but the job’s low income prevents you from paying your basic expenses – you may still qualify for TDIU benefits. 

You should also be aware that you may qualify for TDIU benefits if you can only work jobs that allow extreme accommodations. U.S. workplaces must offer reasonable accommodations to anyone with a disability, but an employer can lawfully refuse a requested accommodation if it constitutes an undue hardship. In many cases, a severe service-connected condition will warrant extreme accommodations that most employers will not facilitate. Consequently, many Veterans are forced to work exclusively for friends or family members who are willing to allow a far greater level of accommodation than is required by law.

If you have a service-connected condition but are still able to do some types of work, you may need to seek VA disability benefits – which still award you compensation for reduced quality of life and lost earning capacity – instead of TDIU benefits. Our national Veterans unemployment attorney can evaluate your situation and advise how to move your case forward.

Our national Veterans unemployment attorneys can help you build a sound, persuasive appeal. This will typically include obtaining new evidence and expert opinions from medical professionals. We understand what the VA is looking for when scrutinizing appeals and will leverage our knowledge to benefit your case. It does not matter if The Veterans Advocacy Law Group did not represent you when you submitted your original application. We are more than prepared to assist you at any stage. 

Once the VA approves your application for TDIU compensation, you will start receiving monthly benefits. This monetary compensation is equal to what you would receive if you had a 100% disability rating – the highest possible rating – through disability benefits. You may be able to get additional compensation if you have dependent children or parents. We are committed to helping you access these crucial benefits that you and your family deserve.
