VA Form 21-4140 Employment Questionnaire

What Is VA Form 21-4140?

VA Form 21-4140 - or the VA Employment Questionnaire - is a form used by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for gathering the information necessary to determine a Veteran's continued entitlement to Individual Unemployability benefits.

The VA released the latest edition of the form in October 2017. An up-to-date VA Form 21-4140 fillable version is available for download and digital filing below.

Individual Unemployability (IU) benefits - or Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits - are payments provided to Veterans who are unable to secure a job due to a service-connected disability. A TDIU rating equates to a 100% disability rating. If a Veteran is granted a TDIU rating their VA service-connected disability rating is automatically raised to 100%.
