Even our Medical Experts at Valor 4 Vet cannot help you until you have a current diagnosis by your treating Medical Provider.
Sounds like the Help Center isn't finding the answers you need.
You can give us a call, M-F 9am to 4pm EST at 888-448-1011, or if you login/register for the Portal you can schedule a time for us to call you.
A Claims File is your legal file that is kept by the VA. These are NOT the VA medical records.
These are medical records from your time in the military.
Why 7 years? The law requires that medical records are helf for 7 years. After that, they can be destroyed.
You want to build your story for every condition you wish to claim. We recommend filling out one Statement in Support of Claim for every one medical condition.
This makes for multiple statements but it also makes it easier for the VA staff to identify which statement belongs to which condition.
Luckily, you can share this link for a friend or relative to complete and send to the Evidence Intake Center.

Make the Statement form super easy for family and/or others.
