Revised application for disability benefits (VA Form 21-526EZ)

VA has revised its Application for Disability Compensation and Related Compensation Benefits, Form 21-526EZ, which will replace VA Forms 21-526 (application for compensation and/or pension), 21-526b (supplemental claim form), and 21-526c (pre-discharge compensation claim). The new application form is essentially only two (2) pages long – but it is accompanied by six (6) pages of information regarding the Fully Developed Claim process and the evidence needed to support various types of claims. This change is in response to legislation that revises VA’s notification requirements.
