A new Department of Veterans Affairs claims and appeals process took effect Feb. 19. Veterans who appeal VA claims have three decision review options: a high-level review, a supplemental claim or an appeal to the board of Veterans' Appeals. VA officials aim to complete supplemental claims and higher-level reviews in an average of 125 days, and decisions appealed to the Board in an average of 365 days, they said in a release. Under the previous process, decisions typically took three to seven years. Read more about the new claims process options on Military.com.
