Tell Vets and Survivors to File

Filing for veterans’ benefits, and appealing decisions on claims, can be time-consuming and confusing. But with the recent roll-out of new, streamlined claims processes, applying for veterans benefits now promises to be faster, easier and more accurate.

The changes involve:

1) New requirements to use standardized forms for filing for benefits

2) A new form for appealing decisions

3) A new “intent to file” a claim process for those who need more time to gather information while preserving an effective date for benefits

If you are a veteran or you know a vet, or a survivor who has put off applying for benefits because it was too difficult, encourage them to visit and check out the new ways to file for claims.
