Total Disability and Individual Unemployability (TDIU)

You Have Done Your Part, Let Us Do Ours

Atlanta Veteran Total Disability & Individual Unemployability (TDIU) Lawyer

Helping Veterans Who Are Unable to Work Throughout the Nation

You have gone above and beyond to serve and protect our country. Then, you come home to discover that your service-related disability is holding you back from getting a job and keeping it. As a result, you may qualify for total disability and individual unemployability benefits. In other words, you can get the same disability benefits as a veteran who has a 100% disability rating due to your inability to secure employment because of service-connected injuries or diseases. Benefits include health care coverage and monetary compensation, and you must file a claim to know if you’re eligible. 

Call Stevens & Sullivan, LLC today at (404) 692-6494 or contact us online to schedule a consultation with our total disability & individual unemployability lawyer in Atlanta.

How To Prove That Your Service-Related Disability is Preventing You From Working?

Your claim should include the following evidence to prove that your service-related disability is preventing you from maintaining a steady job:

  • VA or private medical and hospital records on your claimed illnesses or injuries or that demonstrate your rated disability has worsened
  • Supporting statements from family members, friends, clergy members, law enforcement officials, or those you served with that can describe your claimed condition, how and when it happened, or how it got worse
  • Documents revealing your work and education history

There are many instances in which a veteran is denied TDIU benefits due to a minor issue or processing mistakes on behalf of the VA. It is unacceptable to us. You selflessly fought for our country; now it's time we fight for you.

Thus, our Atlanta TDIU attorney can help you navigate this complex process as efficiently as possible, as we know how to handle every step and anticipate potential issues to best prevent them. Reach out to us online or call (404) 692-6494 to learn more.

How to Qualify for Total Disability & Individual Unemployability

Your disability rating does not need to be 100%, but the VA can compensate and offer benefits to you as if it were. Even though you’re not 100% disabled, your disability is enough to prevent you from holding down a steady job. 

Thus, if you meet both of the following requirements, you may be entitled to TDIU benefits:

  • You have at least one service-connected disability rated at 60% or more disabling or two or more service-connected disabilities with at least one rated at 40% or more disabling and a combined rating of 70% or more.
  • You can't hold down a steady job that supports you financially (known as substantially gainful employment) because of your service-connected disability. Odd jobs like marginal employment don't count.

You deserve compensation and benefits for your service-connected injury or disease, but unfortunately, Veterans Affairs does not always grant them. This could happen because you didn’t support your claim with adequate evidence, missed a key detail on your application or aren’t deemed eligible, among other reasons.

Luckily, our Atlanta TDIU lawyer is intimately familiar with the process and knows that VA has a history of mistakenly denying claims, meaning we have the key insight and competence you need to successfully file for the compensation and benefits you need to survive. With 40+ years of combined experience, our attorney knows what it takes to help you enjoy the financial security you deserve.
