NEXUS Letters for Veterans


What Is a Nexus Letter?

A nexus letter is written documentation prepared by a doctor or other medical professional that explains how a medical condition or illness is related to a person’s military service.

How a Nexus Letter Can Help You

A nexus letter can help substantiate a claim for benefits based on an injury or illness sustained while serving in the military. A nexus letter provides medical documentation necessary to identify the type and degree of illness or injury for which a veteran can receive benefits. Having a nexus letter can make the difference between having a disability claim approved or denied.

Information You Need to Provide at your Visit

You will need to provide information at your visit to complete the nexus letter. You need to provide details on:

  • When you served in the military
  • Where you served in the military
  • Injuries or illnesses you sustained while serving in the military
  • Information, reports, or names of individuals who can substantiate your claim
  • copies of your VA disability denial letter
  • A copy of your VA Blue button record on removable drive
