Individual Unemployability

Even veterans who aren’t rated 100-percent disabled may be eligible to be paid at the 100-percent monetary rate. VA awards individual unemployability, often referred to as total disability for individual unemployability (TDIU), when a veteran’s service connected conditions prohibit him or her from maintaining gainful employment. This benefit is separate from Social Security Disability Income.


In order to qualify for individual unemployability, a veteran must have:


  • A combined 70-percent scheduler rating with at least one service connected condition being rated at 40-percent
  • At least one service connected condition rated at 60-percent

Even if a veteran qualifies for individual unemployability, it can still be a difficult benefit to obtain. At Bergmann & Moore, we work to win our clients service connection and ensure the proper ratings are established, including entitlement to individual unemployability.
