VA and Veterans Service Organizations Announce Claims Initiative to Reduce Claims Backlog

Joint Effort Aimed at Promoting Use of Fully Developed Claims

WASHINGTON  – Today, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), and The American Legion announced a new partnership to help reduce the compensation claims backlog for Veterans. The effort—the Fully Developed Claims (FDC) Community of Practice—is a key part of VA’s overall transformation plan to end the backlog in 2015 and process claims within 125 days at 98% accuracy. VA can process FDCs in half the time it takes for a traditionally filed claim.   Click here to review the FDC Plan
