This page includes links to VCF forms and resources to help you complete your claim. They are provided in PDF format, where possible, to make it easier for you to complete and print the documents. If you type data into a form, please remember to save the file with a different file name in order to save your changes.

If you file your claim using the online system, many of the forms listed below are incorporated into the online form and you will not need to complete them as separate files. You should only use the individual forms below if filing in hard copy or responding to a request from the VCF for missing information that is needed in order to process your claim. If you are unsure how to proceed, please call our Helpline for assistance.

If the document is available in another language, it has been noted beside the document listing.  You can also find a full list of our foreign language resources on each of our foreign language pages.
