At VBG, we fight for the rights and interests of Veterans.
As a team of many Veterans at VBG, we’re dedicated to enriching Veterans’ quality of life. That’s why VBG fights for state and federal policies that protect the rights and interests of all Veterans, including the right to access the help they need to navigate the VA disability claims process.
ENSURING VETERANS CAN
ACCESS HELP TO NAVIGATE THE VA
The current VA disability claims process doesn’t serve Veterans well. The complex and confusing process often leaves Veterans waiting years to receive their benefits and getting less than they have earned. The VA faces a massive claims backlog and inventory. And Veterans are frequently undergoing insufficient and rushed medical exams, which result in inaccurate claims applications.
Veteran Service Organizations (VSOs) are intended to help Veterans through the claims process, but there are too few VSO representatives and too many with inadequate training. Accredited attorneys, who are costly to hire, are only paid to assist Veterans during the appeals process, so they provide no help on initial applications. Even worse, these attorneys are incentivized to drag out appeals. The longer an appeal takes, the more the attorney is paid.
