Anyone have any questions about how to file for a disability claim or currently in the process of making a disability claim? If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Especially if you have deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. Phone Post

Step 1. Go to the link and print out the form.

http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/vba-21-526-are.pdf

Step 2. Fill it out. Having your DD214 with you will help.

Step 3. Mail out the form to the nearest VA office.

Step 4. Wait. It might take 6 or more months for the VA to start working on your claim due to the large amount of vets filing claims. Also depends on what state you're in. The VA will periodically mail you a letter letting you know that they have not forgot about you and that they're still working on your claim.

Step 5. The VA will mail you a list of appointments to go to. The number of appointments just depends on how many injuries you are reporting.

Step 6. Go to the appointments.

Step 7. Wait for your VA rating results in the mail. Phone Post
