The current inventory of compensation claims contains two types of claims:
- Original claims, which are those submitted by Veterans of all eras who are claiming disability compensation or pension from VBA for the first time.
- Supplemental claims, which are those submitted by Veterans of all eras who have previously filed for disability compensation or pension with VBA. For example, where a Veteran’s condition has worsened, they may file for review to see if they are entitled to greater compensation, and supplemental claims include Veterans already on the rolls who claim a new condition.
