It is notoriously difficult to achieve a 100% disability rating the higher your rating is. In a system that is supposed to be helpful to veterans who are having issues making ends meet due to job security difficulties and provide the benefit of the doubt to the veteran, we all too often see veterans stuck at 60%, 70%, 80%, 90% ratings when they should really be at 100% rating compensation. The difference between a 90% rating and a 100% rating is significant. In 2020, a 90% rating is approximately $1,860 while a 100% rating is approximately over $3,000. Fortunately, there is a type of claim known as Total Disability Based on Individual Unemployability, also known as TDIU, IU, or just Unemployability, that can help veterans receive 100% compensation while still being at a lower rating. In this section, we discuss everything about VA Unemployability.
