Disabled Vets http://wyso.org en Congress and VA Work to Process Backlog on Disability Claims http://wyso.org/post/congress-and-va-work-process-backlog-disability-claims <p></p><p>Members of Congress from Ohio are pushing for action to help veterans with disabilities. They have&nbsp;joined with other Republicans to ask the Department of Veteran's Affairs to address long waits for disability claims, and for accountability.</p><p>House Republicans have sent two letters to date. The first, back in January, demanding that something be done about the processing time for disability claims. Mike Turner of Ohio's 10th district says the average time is over a year-400 days-to file claims.</p> Tue, 16 Jul 2013 18:28:10 +0000 Jerry Kenney 36280 at http://wyso.org
