WASHINGTON, D.C. (KTSM) — A new, faster way to process disability claims is now available to veterans online.
The joint VA-Dept. of Defense Web portal eBenefits is integrating with the new internal Veterans Benefits Management System, which officials hope will eliminate the disability claim backlog by the end of 2015.
Instead of filling out and mailing forms, veterans can enter their information with online software that officials compare to other popular tax preparation software, complete with "step-by-step, interview-style application, with pre-populated data fields and drop-down menus,".
