When attempting to increase your disability, you put the fate of your evaluation in the hands of contracted VA Doctors. As you may have experienced with past examinations, many C&P lack compassion and/or are unwilling to take YOUR WORD as medical evidence, which generally produces an inconsistency between how you reported your symptoms and the rating you received. Using private medical providers who understand the VA claims process and ensuring your symptoms are correctly documented could result in the proper rating that you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a VA Disability Claim?

Veterans with service-connected conditions submit a VA Disability Claim in order to collect their disability benefits.

How Do I Submit My Claim?

The best way to submit your claim is directly through the VA’s eBenefit portal. You can also submit a paper copy of VA Form 21-526EZ to the address provided on the form. It is best to submit all of your supporting evidence along with your claim.

When Can I Submit a Claim?

Once you are a retired veteran, you can submit a claim for your VA disability benefits at any time. If you are still active duty, you can only submit a claim once you are within 90 days of your discharge date or as part of the Integrated Disability Evaluation System.

Do I Have to Submit a Claim for Each Condition?

No. If you want to simplify the process, you can submit each of your conditions on the same claim. However, if you forget to add one or another develops later, then you will have to submit a new claim for those specific conditions. Remember, the VA will only rate conditions that you can prove are service-connected.

How Long Does It Take the VA to Process My Claim?

A claim submitted with all of the necessary documentation will typically be processed within 3 months. If your claim is missing information, it could take significantly longer.

How Can I Check on the Status of My Claim?

You can find the current status of your claim in your eBenefits portal.

What is a VA Disability Rating?

A VA Disability Rating is a percentage assigned by the VA based on the severity of your service-connected conditions. The higher the percentage, the more compensation a Veteran will receive for their conditions.

Do My Conditions Qualify for a Rating?

In order for your conditions to qualify for a rating by the VA, they must be a result of your military service.

How Do I Apply to Receive My Ratings?

To apply, submit a VA Disability Claim along with evidence of service-connection and all medical records regarding your specific conditions on the claim.

If My Claim is Approved, What Benefits Will I Receive?

If the VA approves your claim, you will receive a monthly payment as well as full medical care from the VA for your service-connected disabilities.

How Does the VA Determine Rating Percentages?

The VA follows the rules of the VA’s Schedule for Rating Disabilities (VASRD) to determine rating percentages. This is based on your symptoms, treatment options, and how it directly results from your disability.

How Can I Increase My VA Rating?

If the VA assigned an incorrect rating, you can appeal their decision by proving that you qualify for a higher rating. Remember, if your conditions have worsened since you last applied, then you can submit a new claim asking for an increased evaluation.

What are Disability Benefits Questionnaires (DBQ)?

DBQs are downloadable forms created for Veterans to use during the evaluation process for disability benefits. DBQs help speed the processing of Veterans’ disability compensation and pension claims.

The good thing about DBQs is that it allows Veterans to have more control over their disability claim process by giving them an option of visiting a primary care provider in their community instead of completing an evaluation at a VA facility.

Who is authorized to complete a DBQ?

Providers with an active medical license must sign and attest to medical conditions on completed DBQs — Veterans private treatment providers or Veterans Health Administration (VHA) clinicians.

How do you submit completed DBQs to the VA?

Veterans and/or their physicians may directly deliver, mail, or securely fax completed DBQs to the VA Regional Office handling their claim.
