Intent to File a VA Claim with VA Form 21-526EZ

In this video, we demystify the process of filing VA claims and clarify how many claims you can file simultaneously. Understanding this is crucial for veterans seeking VA disability benefits.

Key Points Covered

Intent to File: You can only have one active intent to file at a time. This ensures that your claim is processed efficiently and without confusion.

VA Form 21-526EZ: Similar to the intent to file, you can only have one VA Form 21-526EZ active at any given moment.

Combining Claims: If you attempt to open an additional claim while another is active, the VA will combine them into a single, comprehensive claim. This helps streamline the process but can sometimes lead to delays if not managed correctly.

Exceptions: There are certain circumstances where the VA may allow you to file multiple claims at once, such as for related disabilities or if filing under different programs.

Prioritizing Claims: It’s important to prioritize which claims are most urgent and need to be filed first. This can help expedite the process and ensure that your most critical needs are addressed promptly.
