    Question: in the video we were told the form number for a “claim for increase in compensation” would be given in Show Notes. The form number is not there. What form should we submit with a claim for an increase of compensation for an accepted service connected condition?

    Great information Chris. 42 minutes into the video I found myself taking notes and performing Google searches.
