What is a Disability Benefits Questionnaire (DBQ)?

Disability Benefits Questionnaire (DBQ) are medical examination forms that are used to collect and record relevant medical information in order to evaluate the severity of a veterans' disabilities and process their disability claims.

They guide the VA to properly rate the progression of your condition, which is why it is extremely important to make sure all information is submitted accurately and with incredible attention to detail, documenting all aspects of a veteran's worsening conditions.

Thankfully, Vets-Assisting-Vets partners with a large network of private doctors with an understanding of the claims process.

What is a VA Nexus Letter?

A VA Nexus letter is a detailed report created by a neutral, third-party doctor that explicitly links a veteran's disability or current medical condition to one or more events that occurred during their military service.

Its purpose is to help a veteran seek service-connected compensation in opposition to the Veterans Affairs' rejection of a recently or previously submitted claim.

We work with licensed medical practitioners who have the knowledge and experience necessary to write effective Nexus letters for veterans that will help them obtain the benefits they qualify for.
