Problems Processing Disability Claims of Veterans

Posted:
WACO -

There are still problems in the processing of veterans disability claims.

An audit released today by the Inspector General finds the Veterans Affairs regional office in Waco did not accurately process 40% of the disability claims they reviewed.

Errors were found in the processing of 9 of 30 traumatic brain injury claims. The errors resulted in paying inaccurate and unnecessary financial benefits.

According to the audit, the claims sampled were at a higher risk for processing errors, so this doesn't represent the overall accuracy of claims processing at the Waco V. A. Office.
