This form will allow the Veteran a 12 month window from the established date to complete the appropriate form for the desired claim and also gather any additional documentation that is required to support the claim.
The form can be sent directly to the VA:

When completed the forms and documents can be sent to the same Mail and Fax addresses as above.

These are trying times for all and we hope that you are taking all the precautions for your safety as well as that of your family’s.

We wish all good health and stay safe out there.
