Q: VA Disability Benefits Questionnaires (Compensation and Pension Examinations)
The VA has started using a system of forms, called DBQs, to conduct compensation and pension examinations (C&P). The VA doctor fills out the form and the answers are used by VA in making decisions on service-connection and rating increase.
Veterans do not have to wait for for the scheduling of an appointment by the VA. If you are filing a claim for VA benefits, have your treating doctor fill out the form and submit it as evidence to support your claim.
