Tell us about your own VA claim wait


In order to get a better, more specific picture of the types of claims and lengths of wait for veterans filing benefits claims with the Department of Veterans Affairs, The American Legion has launched a survey available here.

The Legion wants to hear from veterans about how long their claim has been pending, how many conditions were included with the claim, what type of claim it is and why the claim is pending.

"We’re conducting this survey so we can get a better snapshot of the backlog," said Lori Perkio, assistant director of the Legion’s Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation Division. "We’re trying to get an idea of some of the specifics of the issues faced by our members who are a part of this backlog."

After the survey is completed and the information is compiled, it will be given to VA; the Legion also will share the results on legion.org.
