VA Medical Records

Use this form to request VA medical records, including the compensation and pension evaluations.

The VA does not keep centralized medical records. Please request records from every VA where you have received treatment.

You can use the same form to request copies of your compensation and pension evaluations for service-connected disabilities. You normally request compensation and pension evaluations at the VA where you met the evaluator.

Sometimes these studies are contracted out to private third parties. If your VA does not have copies of the comp/pen file, you can call the Veterans Benefits Administration Help Line at 1-800-827-1000.

Please download the form, print it on your local device, sign it in ink, and process the form with every VA where you have received treatment. The form must be signed in ink. Digital signatures are not allowed at the VA.
