Employment Questionnaire for Recipients of Individual Unemployability

by | Jul 12, 2019 | Veterans Disability Benefits, Veterans' Issues |

In 2019, the Veterans Administration started a new process for determining continuing eligibility for total disability based on individual unemployability (“IU”).  Under the old system, VA would send you a VA Form 21-4140, Employment Questionnaire, yearly.  If a response was not received within 30 days, VA would propose to discontinue IU. 

Under the new process, VA will use data wage match with the Social Security Administration to identify Veterans in receipt of IU who also have earned wages above the poverty threshold.  This new process will be less burdensome to Veterans who received IU because only those with the required earnings will receive a VA Form 21-4140. 

VA is only concerned about earned income, so retirement and disability benefit income will not be counted.  This will reduce paperwork and reduce the burden on Veterans who receive IU and do not have earnings above the poverty threshold.  For more information on VA Disability Benefits, contact an experienced VA disability attorney at Gardberg & Kemmerly, P.C. Gardberg & Kemmerly, P.C. represents VA disability claimants in Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, and Louisiana at all levels of the disability process
