Veterans Disability Claims Digitized to Speed Up Process
With the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) partnership with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA), the VA is working on scanning the billions of pages of documents that make up the nearly 900,000 paper disability claims awaiting a decision at VA offices across the nation. The NARA’s high quality scanning system will help the VA transfer paper documents into the electronic Veterans Benefit Management System, which is being put to use at 16 regional offices by September.
By 2013, the electronic benefit system will be the standard at all 56 regional offices. Meanwhile, the VA is hoping more veterans will be filing their new claim applications through its online system to continue the transition to an eventually paperless system.
By having your veterans’ disability claim organized you can minimize the risk of losing important forms or missing critical documentation that could result in a wrongful denial of benefits.
At Disability Help Group we are already living in the digital age thanks to our custom EZclaim system. This paperless database allows us to scan a client’s entire application and all documents related to his or her claim, giving our representatives one-click access to a client’s complete veterans’ disability claim.
If you are a disabled veteran who has been denied disability compensation or have not yet applied for benefits from the VA, a South Florida disability representative from Disability Help Group is ready to help.
