Disability Benefits Questionnaires (DBQs)

With Disability Benefits Questionnaires (DBQs) Veterans now have more control over the disability claims process. Veterans have the option of visiting a private health care provider instead of a VA facility to complete their disability evaluation form.

precisely the information they need to start processing the claim.
