Believing in a holistic approach to caregiver stress and a strong commitment to helping our members find the right solutions, we created this blog to help you connect with others who, like you, may be facing the same eldercare issues and challenges. Feel free to comment, ask questions, and submit articles. Please forward the blog link to your family and friends. They'll be glad you did.

New Records Set in Claims Processing

VA produced more than 103,000 decisions in August 2010, and just under 103,000 in September, breaking all previous records on the number of decisions rendered in one month's time.  The fiscal year ended with an annual total of more than 1 million disability claims completed, another first for VA.   Increasing efficiencies, use of overtime, and the spirit of a can-do workforce is helping VA strike historic marks in processing claims for disability benefits.  VA's commitment to quality is unwavering, and our systematic technical accuracy review shows quality continues to trend in a positive direction.  Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
