VA Law and Manuals


Recommended Posts

  • Founder

Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service-connected disability compensation claim is governed by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim. It can be a bit daunting. Just remember, the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law, and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals, which is how they apply the law. The law's section covering veteran's benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. The C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar; V.A. frequently requested manuals are listed below.

U.S.C. United States Code U.S.C.A. United States Code Annotated U.S.C.S. U.S. Code Service C.F.R. Code of Federal Regulations
United States Code is the law, and the U.S.C. is the government's official copy of the code. The U.S.C.A. contains everything printed in the official U.S. Code but includes annotations to case law relevant to the particular statute. Like the U.S.C.A., the U.S.C.S. contains everything printed in the official U.S. Code but includes annotations to case law relevant to the particular statute. The C.F.R. is the interpretation of the law.
