    Do I need to take a copy of my medical records to the VA so I can get help and apply for disability, or will they somehow magically already have files?

    Are you coming off of active duty? My application for disability was handled by the Disabled American Veterans. I think my records were sent by the PSB to the respective VA hospital. All I did was show up for the appointments.

    if you're smart you do this

    either way, if you're granted Disability the VA will have a copy of your original records anyway. They request them from the national archives in New Orleans. The VA will have all your information. Having a copy isn't a bad idea though just in case.
