VA Scandals

Shreddergate and other scandals

On the 13th of October, 2008, VA Watchdog dot Org broke the story about documents found in shredder bins at the VA's Detroit Regional Office.

A number of those documents were critical to veterans' disability claims.

As the story unfolded, VA finally began to release information on the incident and we learned that more than one Regional Office was involved in this shredder scandal.

The VA's Office of Inspector General (VAOIG) is investigating.

VA has instituted new guidelines regarding handling of documents.

if you know of a store or other that gives a discount to veterans, post it here. Share the Wealth :)

Title 38 Pensions, Bonuses, and Veterans' Relief also called 38 CFR. CFR stands for Code of Federal Regulations.

Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is goverened by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

It can be a bit daunting. Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.
