Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU or IU) allows a veteran to receive compensation for 100% disability even if the veteran has less than a 100% schedular rating. TDIU is based on the fact that the service connected disability, though less than 100%, causes the veteran a total inability to work. VA regulations provide that for a veteran to receive TDIU the veteran must have one service connected disability rated at 60% disabling or a combination of disability ratings totaling 70% with one of the included ratings being at least 40% disabling. To be entitled to TDIU, however, the veteran must also prove that he or she is unable to secure or follow gainful employment as a result of his or her service connected conditions.
