File a pre-discharge claim while overseas

You can file a disability claim through the Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD) program while you’re stationed overseas. You’ll need to make sure you have enough time to finish your medical exam in the country where you’re located, which may include visits to specialty clinics.

In Germany (Europe, Africa, or the Middle East)

Contact the Landstuhl BDD office in one of these ways:

The BDD office is in building 3724 at the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center. We’re open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. 

What you need to know to complete the pre-discharge claim process

  • You’ll need to have a copy of your service treatment records for your most recent service period, and
  • You must be available for 45 days from the date you apply for a VA medical exam, and
  • You’ll need to have enough time in-country to finish the medical exam, which may involve visits to several specialty clinics

In Korea (countries in the Pacific Theater)

Contact the Camp Humphreys office in one of these ways:

The Korea BDD office is in Maude Hall (One-Stop Building).  This is building 6400. We’re in room V301, just before the SFL-TAP office. We’re open Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
