These initiatives show the VA’s commitment to modernizing its claims process, thereby providing Veterans with faster and more accurate decisions on their applications for benefits.

Agent Orange Claims Will Take Time To Pay
"If the VA’s current plan pans out, they will be issuing disability rating decisions and checks on a weekly basis.
"The VA does not have all the information it needs to rate and process retroactive disability claims, some of which date back 25 years."

VA offers Agent Orange fast track
"VA officials encourage all Vietnam file a claim now."

The VA said it expects more than 150,000 veterans to submit Agent Orange claims within the next 12 to 18 months. And there are many more like Burkat, who have submitted claims and are waiting for a decision.
