You MUST submit your VA Blue Button Report for compensation for your hearing injury by November 20, 2023.

You may have sent prior documents, such as your disability rating for Tinnitus or hearing loss. Still, the court requires we show changes in hearing by comparing an earlier and later hearing test for hearing loss and evidence of a medical diagnosis for Tinnitus. We know we have asked a lot of you, but we are getting close to obtaining compensation for you.
