Your Pressing TDIU Concerns Answered
TDIU benefits are life-changing, and we understand you might have more questions.
Let’s answer a few of the most common ones.
Are there TDIU benefits for my family?
Explore VA benefits for veterans’ families: Health care through CHAMPVA or TRICARE, educational grants like Chapter 35 and transferable GI Bill benefits, and career counseling for dependents.
Surviving spouses can apply for VA home loan assistance and foreclosure help.
Life insurance options, claims support, and pre-need burial eligibility in VA cemeteries are available, alongside burial aid and grief counseling.
Surviving family may qualify for monthly pensions and compensation for service-connected deaths. These programs are committed to honoring veterans by supporting their families.
Will I lose my TDIU benefits if I try to work?
Typically, the answer is no. TDIU is designed to provide compensation to veterans who are unable to secure or hold employment due to their disabilities, even when their disabilities do not amount to a 100% total disability rating usually needed for similar levels of compensation.
There is an exception. To qualify for TDIU, your earnings must fall beneath the poverty line, and you must be unable to obtain additional employment to increase your total income above it.
