After spending some time on the VA web site and reading this thread discovered I was filling out the wrong form. I thought I had to apply for medical bennies before I applied for the hearing loss. Now I know one needs to go directly to the 21-526 as Hangfire stated above. Looks like I need to get a hearing test from some place to prove my hearing loss. Then I can finish filling out the form.
Unless things have changed in the past five years I did not have to submit proof / documentation stating that I had hearing loss along with the VA form 21-526EZ.......I sent in the completed 21-526EZ form along with a copy of my DD214 stating that I had what I felt was service related hearing loss and tinnitus and after 'X' period the VA contacted me via letter and told me to contact the OKC VA Audiology Dept. to arrange for a hearing test.
