Question

I hope that this post is allowed. If not, sorry & please let me know. I just thought it may help answer some questions about VA's attitude and problems with their new claims system.

Read this article today and thought I would pass it on to others. Bottomline, the article talks about VA & their new claims filing system.

Sorry to correct you but it is the new, old, new, maybe system...it's all about metrics brother, that's what oils the cogs. Shuffle, shuffle, shuffle...is this your card? No? what about this one? Poof! You're dead.

Exactly. Veterans ALREADY have to file a "formal" 21-526 to get benefits.

Now, there is a "intent to file".

The old way was vastly superior. Why would we submit an "intent to file" when the form specifically says "this is not a claim for benefits"?

In other words, Vets need to file 3 times:

1. Intent to file.

2. 21-526

3 Actual filing?

No wonder why Vets are confused. Why are we required to file an intent to file to get benefits when "this is not a claim for benefits"? If its not a "claim for benefits" then what is it?

That's right. Its another excuse for VA to delay 100,000 more claims because we:

1. Did not file an intent to file.

2. Did file an intent to file and filed a 21-526, but did not "actually file"?

This is a paperwork nightmare on steroids.
