VA Policy News: TDIU Claims

VA clarified its procedures regarding claims for total disability ratings based on individual unemployability (TDIU). Significantly, VA will require the veteran to submit a completed VA Form 21-8940 before deciding the claim – and will deny claims if VA requested, but the veteran did not submit, the completed form. In addition, VA acknowledged that a medical examination is not required to determined entitlement to TDIU – and that the determination of unemployability rests with the rating specialist.
