In February, VA's Veterans Benefits Management System (VBMS) completed a key milestone, electronically processing its 5-millionth claim. VBA processes nearly 100 percent of disability compensation claims electronically through VBMS. The system allows claims processors and power of attorney designees, nationwide, the ability to instantly review close to 3 billion images related to veterans claims. In the near future, VBA plans to expand its electronic claims processing capabilities to include automation and digital VA appeal processing. For more information, read the VA VAntage Point Blog.
