Episode 64: New VA Forms to Replace Form 21-4138 – Statement in Support of Claim

VA Form 21-4138, or the Statement in Support of Claim form, is a VA form that veterans, their families, friends, or former service members can use to provide information to corroborate a claim for VA benefits. Until recently, VA Form 21-4138, Statement in Support of Claim was the only form veterans could use to submit a variety of statements or make certain requests. To address the gap in forms, VBA has created five new forms to be used in lieu of VA Form 21-4138. Join the CCK team as we discuss how these new forms will be tailored to specific requests, will make it easier for veterans to communicate with VA, and will help VA to expedite the claims process.
