APPLICATION FOR DISABILITY COMPENSATION
VA Form 21-526EZ
If you or someone you love is a Veteran with a current disability, VA Form 21-526EZ is one of the most important forms you need to know about in order to claim disability benefits.
Before you can proceed with filing VA Form 21-526EZ for disability benefits, one of the following three scenarios must be true:
• You sustained an illness or injury during active military service and can provide medical evidence linking your current disability to the duties you completed in the military.
• You had a diagnosed illness or injury before you entered military service and completing your duties made the condition worse.
• You have a current disability related to active duty, but you did not develop any complications from it after your honorable discharge.
The Department of Veterans Affairs also uses this form to determine eligibility for the following benefits and programs:
• Automobile Allowance and Adaptive Equipment.
• Benefits Based on a Veteran’s Seriously Disabled Child.
• Compensation Claims Submitted Prior to Discharge.
• Disability Service Connection.
• Increased Disability Compensation.
• Individual Unemployability.
• Secondary Service Compensation.
• Special Monthly Compensation.
• Specially Adapted Housing and Special Home Adaptation.
• Temporary Total Disability Rating.
VA Form 21-526EZ is the appropriate one to use if you are seeking increased disability benefits or you disagree with an eligibility determination made by the VA more than 12 months ago.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost To Hire You?
It does not cost you anything to hire our Veterans Benefits Law Firm as your attorneys. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win you an award. Our firm charges 20%, which is deducted by the VA from your lump sum payment for retroactive benefits.
How Long Will It Take To Appeal My Benefits Denial?
While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.
How Do I Increase My Disability Rating?
Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s fairly simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.
