Your VA refers to any illness or injury as a  condition.

You must have a specific medical diagnosis to claim a condition. For example,

you can't generalize by saying "My bones hurt." You'll need a

medical diagnosis such as "osteoarthritis, left knee" or similar.


The very best listings of all VA rateable conditions will be found in

The Schedule For Rating Disabilities.


Below you'll find a listing of DBQ's of rated conditions.

As you research and develop your claim, you should find your condition in

The Schedule For Rating Disabilities as well as its specific DBQ.

Once you've done that you'll know exactly what VA is looking for so that they

can service connect and rate your disabling condition.

VA SPOTLIGHT

Brett Valette, PhD


UPDATED...April 2017

This is a series of stories
