How do I increase my VA disability rating?

If a condition that you are service-connected for through VA has worsened, you can file an increased rating claim using the basic claims form or by submitting a letter to your regional office indicating that your condition has worsened and you would like it reevaluated. It might be helpful to submit treatment records to VA proving a worsening of your condition.
