Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU)

The satisfaction that comes with finishing a hard day’s work is priceless. It’s also the embodiment of the American dream. When a physical or psychiatric disorder threatens a Veteran’s ability to perform their duties at work there is a safety net in place. Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU) exists to provide disabled Veterans a way to support themselves when they are unable to work.

Toxic Exposures

Chronic exposure is continuous or repeated contact with a toxic substance over a long period of time (months or years). If a chemical is used every day on the job, the exposure would be chronic. Over time, some chemicals can build up in the body and cause long-term health effects.

Psychiatric Disabilities

Veterans seeking service connection for psychiatric disorders or increased ratings for these disorders are perhaps the most disadvantaged claimants in the VA system.  These Veterans must contend with the VA’s maze-like bureaucracy and with their own emotional impairments. Added to these difficulties is the problem of proving psychiatric disabilities. While most physical disabilities can be easily diagnosed and evaluated, psychiatric disabilities are often difficult to diagnose, and even more difficult to evaluate.
