If I Don’t Meet the Percentage Criteria?
Special consideration will be given for veterans when the following criteria is met:
• The veteran is considered unemployable due to a service-connected disability(ies) but fails to meet the minimum percentage standards, OR
• There is evidence of exceptional or unusual circumstances to impairment of earning capacity due to disabilities (for example, interference with employment or frequent periods of hospitalization)
Note: Veterans may have to complete an employment questionnaire once a year in order for VA to determine continued eligibility to Individual Unemployability.
