Income levels for TDIU


Do you have to make poverty earnings to qualify for TDIU, or can the average Joe with a few bucks be granted TDIU if qualify? Thanks. Semper Fi.

TDIU is otherwise known as the unemployability benefit...meaning that you can't find and hold a job because of service connected disabling conditions. The TDIU veteran is allowed to work at marginal employment, that employment that earns less than the federal poverty wage level in your region.
