Revised Fully Developed Claim Procedures

The “EZ” forms have been revised as well as the Fully Developed Claim (FDC) procedures. These new procedures will be followed when the veteran uses the new August 2011 VAF 21-526EZ. The Fast Letter and the new forms explain the differences between the FDC process and the standard claim process, to include what the claimant needs to do and when the claimant should submit information and evidence. The new VAF 21-527EZ and VAF 21-534EZ will be available soon.
