It's not routine for the VA to mail out a TDIU Form. Does your vet have other SC medical conditions that you're not aware of? Is he eligible for a VA Pension? TDIU means Total Disability for Individual Unemplyability: when a veteran can't maintain gainful employment due to his/her SC medical conditions.

We did file for High Blood Presure,Asbestosis,hearing loss,etc, but I asked for Unemployability at time I filed. Did not request Pension. Vet has not been gainfully employed last 20 year. Could not keep a job.

A VA Claim for Compensation is also a VA Claim for Pension - so the VA should adjudicate his Pension eleigibility (if he was a combat or combat era vet). The TDIU Form is specifically asking if his service-connected and service-related medical conditions preclude gainful employment.

Question #6 on VA Form 21-8940 asks: WHAT SERVICE-CONNECTED DISABILITY PREVENTS YOU

FROM SECURING OR FOLLOWING ANY SUBSTANTIALLY GAINFUL OCCUPATION?
