Disabled Vets National Foundation Supportive of Legislative Efforts to Address Backlog Reduction


By Disabled Veterans National Foundationdisabled

WASHINGTON, Nov. 1, 2013 — /PRNewswire/ — The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (www.dvnf.org), a nonprofit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, is praising recent legislation that would form a commission to evaluate new ways to reduce the backlog of veterans’ claims.
H.R. 2189 was passed earlier this week in the House, by a vote of 404-1. The legislation would create a task force that would evaluate the claims process and figure out more efficient ways to reduce the backlog. The bill would include both claims awaiting an initial decision and those where a veteran has appealed the decision.
In addition to a task force being formed, the bill also includes a “Pay As You Rate” provision that seeks to help veterans who are currently awaiting a decision on multiple claims. For cases in which veterans have filed claims for multiple disabilities, the bill would require the VA to begin making partial payments to the veteran for each individual disability decision made during the process.
The VA would also be required to provide information to veterans about the fastest way of getting a decision, as well as providing publicly available information to track claims and compare the performance of VA regional offices.
