Considering submitting a claim for an increase in your disability compensation? VA's new Decision Ready Claims (DRC) program delivers decisions within 30 days. DRC also covers certain claims related to direct service, presumptive service and secondary service connections. Surviving spouses can file certain claims under DRC, and transitioning servicemembers can use DRC to file pre-discharge claims less than 90 days from leaving the military. To file a DRC, Veterans must work on the submission with an accredited Veteran Service Organization (VSO). For more information and to apply online, visit the VA Disability Compensation webpage.
