Veterans know that nothing gets done with the VA without paperwork. A lot of paperwork. Sometimes getting that paperwork done can be frustrating because it is not always easy to find the forms or records that are needed. These nine links should help with that.
If you know the number of your form, and it starts with VA, or you think there is a form for what you want, check here. There are number and title/keyword searches to help. Two forms of significant interest are VA Form10-10EZ, which is the application for benefits, and VA Form 4107VHA, which is the statement of the veteran’s right to appeal a decision made by the VA.
Worksheets used by the VHA doctors who do the disability examinations. Also used by the ratings specialists, hearing officers and Decision Review Officers of the VBA who do the disability evaluations.
Looking for a specific Federal Regulation to prove something? Look here.
Often a veteran needs to have a copy of his or her service record to show service connection for a disability or healthcare claim. You can request a copy of your military service records here.
If you have ever been told, “this policy is stated in publication XYZ, so I’m sorry, go away,” then you might like this bit of proof. All the VA publications. There are also links to Veterans Health Administration and Veterans Benefits Administration publications. These three, while they seem the same, are different entities.
