Report: VA not doing enough on claims backlog


A new report released yesterday by nine (9) U.S. Senators has found, "the current VA claims backlog breaks the sacred oath the United States made to our brave men and women when they joined the military. It is our duty to take care of them if they incur a service-connected disability. Veterans suffer because of extremely long waits for benefits. At best, waiting over 125 days for a disability compensation claim to be processed by the VA can be frustrating and tiresome. At worst, it can devastate a Veteran financially and emotionally. The people of the United States have always taken care of our Veterans when they come home. This backlog is tantamount to breaking our promise to our nation's Veterans and must come to an end."

The Criss & Rousseau Law Firm helps veterans with valid claims present their case, provide legal arguments, and documentation substantiating entitlement to compensation, benefits, or pension that the Veteran has earned. We will review your claim file, medical evidence, and prepare your claim for the VARO appeal, the Board of Veterans Affairs, or the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The Criss & Rousseau Law Firm can represent you regardless of where you live in the country or across the world. Call today to schedule a free consultation with Colonel (Retired) Rick Rousseau.
