  • The Informal Claim includes the following statement in the form of a letter:
  • I intend to apply for compensation/pension benefits under the FDC Program. This statement is to preserve my effective date for entitlement to benefits. I am in the process of assembling my claim package for submission. The Informal Claim must also be accompanied by:
  • the claimant's name (if other than the Veteran)
  • the Veteran's name
  • the Veteran's claim number

When submitted with a fully developed claim, DBQs ensure the VA's ratings specialists haveprecisely the information they need to start processing the claim.Veterans can have their providers fill out any of the more than 70 DBQs that are appropriate for theirconditions and submit them to us. It’s that easy!
