Hi Jim, I was receiving PUA unemployment due to COVID in April of 2020 and was awarded TDIU (total permanent) in September of 2020. I decided to quit taking the PUA unemployment for fear of losing my VA TDIU benefits. I just got an email saying the PUA unemployment was extended. Am I subject to losing TDIU if I start drawing unemployment again? Thank you.

Your TDIU benefit won't be affected by your receiving PUA. Good luck.
