You need proof of service, a discharge of something other than dishonorable, and proof of some kind that the event in question happened when on active duty, whether it be service medical records, private records from same period. Line of duty statement (if relevant) , and a diagnosis that ties the accident to your back to establish theclaim basics. Something from you doctor now saying there same thing would help a lot too.

 

Then you can file a claim on a 21- 526-ez as a fully developed claim (Or not, there is the option not too also if you are missing some info that will take time too) VA can pull all of that on their own if you give them the dates of service and private medical treatment info (dates, name of provider, location)

Look at the form, it's pretty simple. DONT FORGET To SIGN IT) If you have a POA working for you put that info on there. 2142 and 2142a forms for medical release are also needed. If you have dependents there is another form for that.

 

The instructIons are all on the 526-ez form.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
       
    2. 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.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to 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.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
