Absolutely, age doesn’t determine your right to IU benefits, regardless if you’re a veteran, retired or otherwise.
Here’s everything you need to know.
- If you have a single disability rated at 60% or more, and can’t work due to that disability, you can apply for IU.
- If you have multiple disabilities with a combined rating of 70% or more, where at least one of them has a 40% rating, and can’t work because of these disabilities, you qualify.
Retirement Age Doesn’t Matter
The VA might suggest that since you’re retirement age (65 or older), you can’t claim IU benefits.
This is not true! Even if you took early retirement, it doesn’t disqualify you from Individual Unemployability.

You don’t need to prove you quit working due to your disabilities.
The thing that matters is that you cannot work now because of them.
Your age or retirement status shouldn’t stop you from claiming the IU benefits you’ve earned. If you’re unsure or need guidance, reach out to us. Let’s ensure you get what you’re entitled to. Contact us today for assistance.
