If the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) denied your application for Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU), you could pursue one or more appeal options. If you are able to get a TDIU designation through an appeal, you will be able to get a 100% disability rating and the monthly compensation that rating entitles you to.
TDIU status can provide much-needed financial stability for you and your loved ones. If you have questions about this status or want help seeking a TDIU designation from the VA, a lawyer from Comerford Law Office can assist you.
The VA often denies claims, whether those claims are for a TDIU or otherwise. The smallest of errors can lead to a claim denial, while the VA may cite a lack of documentation and other reasons for denying a claim.
When faced with a claim denial or another decision you disagree with, the VA provides three primary appeal options. These options are:
It is not always obvious which type of appeal you should seek. A VA lawyer can help with every aspect of your TDIU claim, including any necessary appeal.
If you are able to get TDIU status, you will receive the maximum benefits provided by the VA. The precise monthly value of these benefits varies based on your dependent status, but the benefits are meant to reflect your inability to maintain substantially gainful employment.
If you are a veteran who cannot work regularly and lack the income that regular work provides, you may deserve TDIU status. The VA does not assign veterans 100% disability ratings frequently, though, and a lawyer from Comerford Law Office will fight to get the benefits you deserve.
