Veterans Appeals Roundtable

National VFW - 4/3/2017

The House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs hosted a roundtable discussion about modernizing the appeal process for veterans’ disability benefits. The VFW along with other Veteran Service Organizations, the Department of Veterans Affairs, the Government Accountability Office, and members of the subcommittee, discussed pending legislation that would streamline process. Key features of the legislation include a one-step appeals process to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, a faster "no additional evidence” lane at the Board, improved notice letters for veterans claims, and effective date protections for veterans regardless of which appeal option they choose. Continue to follow the VFW Action Corps Weekly for more updates on this legislation.
