Did you complete and submit a 21-8940 for TDIU ?

I only submitted a claim for unemployability , I didnt even know that I could submit a claim for temperary unemployability until now! if my claim for unemployability is denied can I still submit a claim for temporary unemployability while I ask for a BVA? if its denied?

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...

Mak sure on the form Question # 18 that you check yes and then under Remarks rfer them to separate page and tell them you get disablity retirement solely due to your SC disabilities. Tell them of any side affects of the SC meds that would hinder employment and,if Voc Rehab ever turned you down solely due to your SCs, tell them that too.

You certainly present a claim would warrant TDIU (paid at the 100% rate of comp)but they wont award TDIU until they get receipt of the TDIU form.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
