The U. S. Department of Veteran's Affairs has standardized their claims process by:
- using standardized forms for compensation claims (online on the eBenefits page).
- you can get downloadable forms from links in this VA blog post.
- you can get the new form to appeal your claims decision here
- if you want to file a claim, but need time to gather information, you can file an "intent to file a claim" form here.
