Why You Need a VA Attorney to Get TDIU

If you are a disabled veteran and are unable to work due to service-connected disabilities, you may be eligible for Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits. However, obtaining TDIU benefits can be a challenging and complex process, and it is often in your best interest to work with a Veterans Affairs attorney to help you navigate this process.

Here are some of the reasons why you need a Michigan VA attorney from Disability Law Group to help with obtaining TDIU:

Understanding TDIU eligibility criteria

To be eligible for TDIU benefits, you must meet certain eligibility criteria. A VA attorney can help you understand these criteria and determine if you meet them.

◊ Gathering and presenting evidence: To support your TDIU claim, you will need to provide evidence of your service-connected disabilities and their impact on your ability to work. A VA attorney can help you gather the necessary evidence and present it in a way that is most likely to be convincing to the VA.

◊ Navigating the VA claims process: The process of applying for TDIU benefits can be complex, and the VA often requires a significant amount of paperwork and documentation. Our VA attorneys can help you navigate this process and ensure that all necessary paperwork is completed correctly and submitted on time.

◊ Appealing a denied claim: If your TDIU claim is denied, a VA attorney can help you appeal the decision. Our attorneys can help you understand why your claim was denied and can work with you to gather additional evidence and present a stronger case on appeal.

◊ Maximizing your benefits: An attorney can help you understand all of the benefits available to you and can help you determine the best strategy for maximizing those benefits. For example, our attorneys may be able to help you obtain additional benefits, such as Special Monthly Compensation (SMC).
