This just in from the VA
Dear VSO Colleagues:
This letter is in response to multiple inquiries to the Department
of Veterans Affairs (VA) concerning the proposed changes to the total
disability based on individual unemployability (TDIU) program in the
Administration's FY 2018 budget for VA. As a valued partner, I am
writing you to address VA's current position on the TDIU program.
The Department does not support a termination of TDIU
benefits. We are committed to finding ways that empower disabled
Veterans through vocational rehabilitation and employment
opportunities, when appropriate. VA looks forward to our continued
collaboration and finding solutions to best administer the TDIU program
in the future.
