VA Form 21-4138 is the Statement In Support Of Claims; you use this form to support your claim or claims for benefits. This form will be used to send a claim for an increased evaluation of a current disability that has worsened. You can download a copy here and complete it using as many pages as you need. You could do as I did type the first page with enough information to cover the space provided for text, leaving the last line clear where it say (continue on reverse) paste the first page in place and make a copy then copy your second page on the back, Stated another way, print the second page on the reverse side. You are welcome to complete all parts by hand if you prefer.The page you will download come in two pages, so you can insert the second page into the printer and keep the pages on separate sheets. This will make sense and will appear easy when you see the form.

  2. I try to maintain an index to Veteran Service Officers around the country, you can find it at The VSOs services are free, and can help you avoid the most common errors that will delay your claims.

    The web addresses can change without notice, so if you find a broken link let me know so I can update it.

  3. what can we do this claim of alonso bagayna about the statement about this spouse Evelyn Pedrano VA file number 20 572 231…

    tnx i need ur reply pls……

  4. If you are having any problem with a claim filed with the VA and you are unable to solve the problem yourself, contact a VSO or Veteran Service Officer and get some advice and support. You could start with your city, give them a call and ask to speak to the VSO person in that city. The same for your county, and do a search on the internet by entering your Zip Code and locate a veteran service organization, like the American Legion, and contact them and get help with your claim or claims.
    Best of Luck!

  10. I was asked to help my friend straighten this mess out. She was the guardian for her dad, a Veteran. He was approved for benefits in Sept. 2008; he died in Dec. 2009. She only ever got one check and was out a lot of money for his care with her and then later in the nursing home for a short time plus his funeral expenses. She would be happy if the VA would send checks they never sent while he was alive. What is her best course of action.

  11. Where do I mail the Form 21-4138? I misplaced the cover sheet that came with the form.


  12. Thanks for this! I’ve been searching all over the web for the info.

  13. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  14. Consider the folks at to help you organize and structure your stressor or buddy letters. Don’t send letters that are unreadable or not understandable as the VA has enough other puzzles to try and put together. The service is fast, cheap, and confidential!

  15. My opinion is a bit another how it is feasible to talk to the author, for example on an e-mail?
