MECHANICSBURG, Pa., Feb. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Filing for benefits as a disabled Veteran often goes beyond filing a claim to the Regional Veterans' Affairs Office. If the initial claim application is denied, which is not unusual, an elaborate appeals process must be undertaken.
In 2010, Charles Grassley of Iowa, a key Senator on the Senate Finance Committee, said that figures cited in a recent case argued before the Supreme Court showed that between 50 percent and 70 percent of veterans' benefits claims had been unjustifiably denied.
"The fact that the VA's decisions are not only overturned on appeal frequently, but that a majority of claims were so wrongly decided in the first place shows me that there are serious, systemic problems with the process for approving veterans' claims," said Grassley. "The VA needs to tackle this problem head on, because without substantial reform, thousands of veterans will continue to face needless delays and red tape."
