In many cases, a veteran will be diagnosed with multiple disabilities that combine to less than 100% but nevertheless completely prevent him or her from working. The VA decision makers are supposed to evaluate all service-connected impairments and their combined effect on a veteran’s well-being, but we unfortunately see this often isn’t the case.
Usually in these situations, the veteran undergoes multiple Compensation & Pension exams for multiple impairments, each declaring that single condition alone doesn’t prevent the individual from working.
Fortunately, a veteran can still earn a 100% rating under Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU), which takes into account the combined effect all service-connected disabilities have on a veteran’s ability to work.
If you are a veteran suffering from multiple service-connected conditions, further examination of your Compensation and Pension exams may reveal this is the case for you. If the forms from your exams don’t meet VA regulations, the staff of Jan Dils, Attorneys at Law, can help you build a strong case with their proven experience and expert research team on your side.
