Report evaluates VA, DoD disability claims pilot program
Thursday - 12/9/2010, 4:24pm EST
Both agencies have been conducting a pilot to speed up that benefit claim process. The Government Accountability Office has just published its assessment of that process
The Department of Veterans Affairs has improved its disability claims process, but the agency can still do better, says a new report from the Government Accountability Office.
The VA and the Defense Department started testing a disability evaluation system at 27 military facilities back in 2007. The plan is to eventually expand it across the military.
Dan Bertoni, director of Education, Workforce, and Income Security Issues at GAO and author of the report, joined the DorobekINSIDER to explain GAO's recommendations for the pilot program.
