"I am applying for service connection for XXXXXXXXXXXXXX, and any other benefits that I may be entitled
to. Additional documentation will be submitted."
Once the VA receives this notification you have established your claim date and have up to 1 year to submit all of your documentation. If approved the SC date is the date you filed the initial letter. Is this accurate or rumor? I ask because I have just recently been diagnosed with something I believe is SC but it will take me a few months to prepare the necessary documents for a complete claim.
Thanks for any replies and have a happy and safe 4th!!!!!!
