Opto,

I have no idea what you are referring to "I didnt even know that I could submit a claim for temperary unemployability until now! "

I have no idea what you mean by temporary unemployability.

Total disability based upon individual unemployability - TDIU - is an option available to veterans who do not meet the 100% disability requirement, but who are otherwise unable to secure a "substantially gainful" employment. Sometimes a veteran may be awarded TDIU and receive monthly disability compensation benefits as if rated 100% even though the veteran has not received an 100% disability rating. TDIU can be awarded on a temporary or permanent (P&T) basis. Each veteran's case is different, so we can not tell you what the outcome will be, just the basic facts to see if you are eligible.

In order to qualify for TDIU consideration, the veteran must meet two basic requirements:

1. Is the veteran unable to secure, or follow substantially gainful occupation as a result of a service-connected disability(ies)?

2. If the veteran has only one service-connected disability, is it rated at or above 60%? Or, if the veteran has a combined disability of 70% or more, is one of the disability ratings at least 40%?

If the two requirements are met, then the veteran is entitled to CONSIDERATION for TDIU.

If you have already filed out the VA Form 21-8940, then you have already applied for TDIU and are now in the waiting mode. Seems we do a lot of waiting around here.

Hope this helps clarify things...

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
