For Those Who Have A Veterans Claim Pending
By Andy GERO
Veterans who have a claim pending can get a fast decision from the Dept. of Veterans Affairs. First, file a fully developed claim. The VA provides a checklist on how to file a digital claim for compensation through its new Fully Developed Claims program (FDC), the fastest way to get a decision. Visit the VA’s VAntage Point Blog to learn more.
Those who have questions about what is relevant can call the VA at (800) 827-1000 or contact the Veterans Service Officer (VSO) or Ron Bularz at (818) 957-4770 or email R1bularz3@pacbell.net.
