In this article, you will learn about possible reasons for TDIU denial.

What is TDIU Compensation?

Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU) provides disability benefits to eligible veterans from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Eligibility for TDIU is determined by evaluating the veteran’s medical condition to determine his or her degree of disability. The percentage of disability is determined based on a rating scale and the amount of benefits is calculated as a percentage of disability.

TDIU Requirements

In order to qualify for TDIU benefits, a veteran must meet the following two requirements:

  • The veteran is unable to secure substantial gainful employment as a result of a service-related disability.
  • The applicant must have one service-related disability of at least 70%, or a combination of ratings that total at least 60% disability with one of the ratings at least 40%.

Reasons for TDIU Denial

TDIU claims may be denied for several reasons, including:

  • Inappropriate determination that applicant is capable of sedentary work.
  • Applicant fails to provide sufficient supporting information, including medical and military service information.
  • Applicant includes incorrect information with claim.
  • Applicant fails to seek legal advice.
