I know that a claim can be inferred and therefore the va is supposed to investigate it. But how does it all work. If the VA inferred a claim for me do I ever have to actually file a claim for it or will it just get rated? The VA inferred an IU claim for me but I don't know what to do next. The VA rep I talked to said not to file because the claim was already filed for me. Does that seem logical or? My main concern is that I don't want to slow down my mental health claim by submitting docs for IU based on my mental health.
