I am not sure if this is the right thread for this question. I am still in the inital phase of my MEB and I want to make sure that I am doing my homework. How does the claims process work with the VA? I went through my entire records and wrote down the problems I have encountered throughout my military career. Will the VA gives me a list of things to claim? Would it be possible to just claim the things that are on going or should I claim everything? Thanks for your help.

You did the perfect thing already by writing everything that you’ve actually been diagnosed with while in the military. They’ll do exams , labs, and X-rays to corroborate your claims. They may find more issues that will need to be claimed. I complained of back pain. X-Ray revealed I had a fracture in my spinal column! So that’s another claim that the VA will make for me!

My VA representative did a scrub of my record and gave me potential claims and i added to it. Surprisingly however, i received a letter from the VA stating a condition was found during my C&P exams was not claimed by me and i could submit a claim for it. You can claim current conditions that are not in your record and everything that is in there already.
