To improve veterans’ experience with the disability claims process, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has unveiled its latest enhancements to the Decision Ready Claims (DRC) program. This will expand the pool of veterans, surviving spouses and service members eligible to participate in the program. Also, Veterans will now be able to file certain claims for direct service connection, presumptive service connection and secondary service connection. Transitioning servicemembers will be able to file pre-discharge claims less than 90 days from leaving the military. For more information about DRC or to find an accredited VSO representative, visit the DRC webpage.
