Department of Veterans' Affairs backlog in California
Posted on Feb 06, 2012
The average new claim processing time appears to be 12 to 18 months while appeals may take several years. This backlog is frustrating and unacceptable to all concerned, especially to our veterans and their families.
While this article says that the VA is working hard to correct the problem, my opinion is that the VA will be unable to alleviate the backlog and that it will be with us for another generation.
