Who is responsible for proving a claim?

104. Who is responsible for proving a claim?

You are responsible for submitting the necessary evidence to support a claim. We assist you by explaining the evidence that is required to establish your claim. If you are unable to collect the evidence, we offer special assistance to ensure the proper outcome of your claim. In addition, we maintain cooperative relationships with many groups and organizations that provide assistance with the application process.
