In general, neither the 100-percent schedular rating nor TDIU is better than the other, as they both provide VA disability compensation at the 100-percent level.

Husbands and wives across the United States who unfortunately had their significant other die due to their military service are usually eligible to be enrolled in the Dependency and Indemnity Compensation program, more commonly referred to as Survivor’s Benefits.  

This program is designed to help family members who may be struggling with bills and income after the loss of a loved one. Our attorneys are here to aid anyone that can be eligible for these benefits.

My Husband/Wife Passed Away, How Do I Know if I'm Eligible?

Family members and/or spouses/widows of service members who died while protecting the country may be eligible to receive benefits. You might qualify if you meet any of the following criteria: 

• Married to a service member who died while on active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty for training. 

• Validly married to a Veteran before the date of January 1st, 1957. 

• Married to a Veteran within fifteen (15) years of the date that the injury or disease that claimed their life took place/became formally aggravated. 

• Married to the Veteran in question for at least one year. 

• Had a child with the Veteran and lived with said Veteran until their premature death. 

• Did not seek immediate remarriage. 

What's The Difference Between Total Disability Based Upon Individual Unemployability (TDIU) & An Extra-Schedular Disability Rating?

A Veteran must meet two requirements under a TDIU claim to be eligible for a 100 percent disability rating: They must have a service-connected disability with a 60% or more disability rating, or two or more service-connected disabilities with a combined rating of 70% or more AND/OR Medical evidence of unemployability. On the other hand, an extra-schedular rating applies to Veterans who are unemployable, due to their service-connected disability or disabilities, but whose disability does not meet the percentage requirements for any of the two aforementioned scenarios.

How Do I Know What my DIC Rate Will Be?

If the Veteran in question was deceased on or after the date of January 1st, 1993, the rate of $1,437.66 was set in 2021. Here’s the link to a chart that breaks down these rates:  

• https://www.va.gov/disability/survivor-dic-rates/ 

Certain allowances can be added to the first base rate, including the following: 

• Additional $258.00 if the Veteran’s death was already determined to be qualifying for compensation benefits related to a service-connected disability, rated totally disabling for a continuous period of the last eight (8) years. This also includes a rating that is based on individual unemployment. 

• Additional $301.00 per child, if they’re under the age of eighteen (18) and a dependent. 

• An added $301.00 if a surviving spouse is entitled to A&A. 

• An added $141.00 if a surviving spouse is entitled to housebound. 

Families of Veterans who died before the date of January 1st, 1993, are assessed at another rate.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does It Cost To Hire You?

It does not cost you anything to hire our Veterans Benefits Law Firm as your attorneys. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win you an award. Our firm charges 20%, which is deducted by the VA from your lump sum payment for retroactive benefits.

How Long Will It Take To Appeal My Benefits Denial?

While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.

How Do I Increase My Disability Rating?

Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s fairly simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.
