Appeals Process For Veterans' Claims Uncertain

Question

If you don't give us more money, veterans claims will move even slower. (my input)

In 2002, the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims handled more than 17,000 cases. That caseload could approach more than 50,000 this year. "We're prepared to deal with it right now, but as circumstances change, we may be coming back and explaining our problems to you," Lance said.

An understaffed Department of Veterans Affairs' Group 7 – attorneys tasked with more or less prepping cases to go before the Court of Veterans Appeals and then argue cases on behalf of VA – will impact the court, Lance explained. "They're going to be requesting more time … and they're going to slow up the appellate process if they're not properly staffed," Lance said. "Our court has no control over this. It's the (VA) secretary's bailiwick. But if (Group 7's) processes slow down, then our processes will slow down. That's my concern."

Nothing is ever going to be fixed, until the VA quits wrongfully denying claims. That is the root of the problem from which everything else stems from. The money that is appropiated belongs to the veterans the day it was appropriated. Millions of dollars are unaccounted for each year, because someone is stealing it from veterans. Why havent we heard a peep out of the FBI investigations yet?

You are right guys, if the VA would just try to do it right the first time, then there would be no need to spend money on the second go around.
