VA Disability Benefits Questionnaires (DBQ’s):

VA Disability Benefits Questionnaires (DBQ’s) are standardized forms used by medical experts who conduct examinations for VA disability benefits purposes. DBQ’s address a range of medical conditions and include check-the-box inquiries designed to elicit the information needed for the VA to make determinations on the issues of service connection and the proper disability rating for a condition. When completed by a private medical expert, DBQ’s can be valuable evidence used to support a claim for VA disability benefits.
