Today, VA Under Secretary for Benefits Josh Jacobs posted a blog recapping the year in Veteran benefits – including highlighting a record number of claims applications and explaining the claims backlog. Veterans and their families applied for benefits 39% more this year compared to last, and the average claim is processed by VA in 149 days. Please continue to encourage your family and friends to apply for the benefits and services they’ve earned.
