      How do I upload evidence online to support my disability claim? 

      If you’ve filed a claim for disability compensation, you can continue uploading more evidence for up to one year to support your claim. Evidence may include supporting documents like medical test results, doctor’s reports, and other records. Upload your evidence online now.

      If you’re waiting for a decision on your disability claim, you can upload evidence to support that claim using our claim status tool.

      Upload evidence using our claim status tool

      Note: For any other type of document you’d like to submit online to us, please use the QuickSubmit tool through AccessVA.

      If I filed a standard disability claim, when should I upload evidence?

      Upload your evidence as soon as you can.

      You can continue uploading documents for up to 1 year from the date we receive your claim. But, if you don’t provide any evidence or give us the information we need to help you get evidence within 30 days, we may make a decision on your claim earlier.

      If we decide your claim early, you’ll still have the rest of the 1-year period to provide more information or evidence.

      What happens if I upload more evidence after I’ve submitted a fully developed claim?

      We’ll remove your disability claim from the Fully Developed Claims program and process it as a standard claim.

      If we decide your claim earlier than 1 year from the date we received the claim, you’ll still have the rest of the year to provide any additional information or evidence.

    • Some facts and reference on CUE (CLEAR UNMISTAKABLE ERROR)
      Let's begin with the regulation on CUE: and unmistakable error is,different but for the error.

      The Cue error, therefore, needs to be all these things:

      1.  Undebatable.

      2.  Outcome determinative.  

      3.  Based on the records VA has in their possession at the time of the decision.  If VA was/is missing critical evidence, consider filing a 38 CFR 3.156 (new evidence) instead of CUE. 

      4.  May be filed at any time, such as after the one year appeal period expired.  


      What CUE is NOT:

    • Post in Missed filing a VA claim within one year presumptive...
      Let me give you some guidance. But first I have to ask some questions.

      Did you file an "intent to file" with the VA. What this means is you filed with the VA saying I want to file a claim for XX. An "intent to file" claim basically says you are going to provide the VA with more information with in one years time. (Service Medical Records, Doctors Reports outside of the VA Etc.)

      If you did not do an "intent to file" you filed a direct claim and you have started the claims process. Each can be time sensitive.

      Hopefully I can give you a step by step on how to do this. 

      1. If you have not done so you will need to get your military records including you military medical records.

      You need to do this now. You military records can take 1 to 3 Mo.

      Your VA records can take 8 to 9 Mo.

      Without them you are kind of shooting in the dark.

      You need to sign-up with the VA at .

      I recommend you use to get your login above the others as it seems to work better than the others

      This way you can track you claims, apply for other VA benefits'.

      2. Go to the Non-VA doctors that have diagnosed you with XXX and get there medical records. Go through the records and pull out ONLY the ones that say you have XXX and submit ONLY THE RECORS THAT PROVE YOUR CLAIM. I can not stress this enough. The VA people who review your claim do not have the time to read through 500 pages of your medical history to pick out the 2 pages that says you have XXX. This will hopefully speed up your claim.

      3. The quickest way to submit stuff to the VA is at this address. . This is why you need to get the VA access through

      Use the Quick Submit button and follow the instructions. 

      This should get you going in the right direction.

      Two words to the wise.

      1. Do not rely on Youtube or other videos on the internet. There is a lot of misinformation out there. There is a lot of old information that doesn't work in today's VA.

      2. When seeking a VSO with a veterans service veterans service organization the first words out of your mouth should be, "Do you have VBMS access." VBMS access is real time access to your VA claims file. There are a lot veterans service organization that have suto VSO that kind of only do intake for veterans service organization. What I mean by this is they are not "VA Certified Claims Agents." they are only trained by the veterans service organization to fill out forms and submit them via fax or mail. Only "VA Certified Claims Agents" have VBMS access.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
