Frequently Asked Questions
The claims process is ruled by records and what you can prove. Obviously, you should start with obtaining all of your military service records (different places depending on date of discharge), VA medical treatment records, as well as any records of care or treatment from all private facilities including Dr, ER, urgent care, etc. Also, buy a large 3 ring binder to stay organized. Organize your records and documents by category. THIS IS VITAL! You must keep all original records and documents. Never send originals to the VA.
