QuickSubmit has replaced Direct Upload as the online tool to share documents with VA’s Evidence Intake Center. Veterans, service members, their family members, VA employees and business partners will have access to the most efficient way to submit documents and evidence to VA.

Improved access to your files

QuickSubmit provides a fast and effective alternative to faxing or mailing your documents, while also maintaining a record of your uploads. It uses the latest technologies and a human-centered approach to improve the user experience, simplify the submission of evidence, reduce upload errors and improve processing time. The online tool automatically transfers claim documents and information for preliminary processing.

As a new user, you will need to register with QuickSubmit during your first sign-on attempt.

Previous Direct Upload users will also need to register the first time they access QuickSubmit.

Direct Upload will still be available as read-only until all submission records are transferred over to QuickSubmit. Currently, there is no set date for this transfer to be complete.
