GETTING STARTED

The materials above do not apply to service organization accreditation (e.g VFW, DAV, American Legion, etc...) nor practicing attorneys.

The very first thing you should have done or should do if you have not done so is fill out and submit VA Form 21a. The application process to become an accredited claims agent is free; however, VA takes its time to respond to your application. The application requires 3 personal references. VA will send a letter to each reference asking for a response as to your character. Unfortunately, VA does not provide a standard form for your references to fill out. It is important that you keep in touch with your references so that you can encourage them to respond to VA's request. Failure for your references to respond will slow up your accreditation.

It may take 3 to 6 months for VA to respond to your application. Some of you may get a preliminary letter asking for more information about your reasons for being accredited. VA will review your background, employment, and accreditation intentions.

Once approved, your nearest regional office will schedule a time with you to take the free 28 question exam (25 multiple choice and 3 ethics questions based on 38 CFR§ 14.629-14.637).
