You served your country, and in the process you were injured. It could be a bad back. It could be loss of limb. Or maybe you're not sure if you're entitled to any government benefits. American Legion service officers file thousands of VA claims each year on behalf of America's veterans. And the Legion's Benefits Calculator can help you prepare to file a claim.
Barry A. Searle, director of The American Legion Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation Division, recently attended a veterans service organization update on the VA claims business transition lab (BTL) at VA's regional office in Providence RI.
The BTL is an integral part of the VA's strategic plan in improving the claims process and reducing the claims backlog. The BTL focuses on business practices to be improved and integrated with technology improvements to move to a virtual lifetime electronic record.
