Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) Veterans’ Compensation
Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) is a term for compensation from The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for veterans that do not meet the 100% disability requirement, but are “are unable to secure and maintain substantially gainful employment” due to a service-related injury or disability. Even if a veteran does not meet the 100% disability requirement, they still may receive monthly disability compensation as if they were rated at 100% disability.
Monthly compensation is judged on a case-by-case basis, and is based on an individual veteran’s ability to work or lack thereof. It is up to each veteran to prove to the VA that he or she cannot work (or has a reduced capacity for work) due to service-related injury or disability.
