VETERANS' CORNER: Release of 68 forms designed to speed up claims processing

By Jim Vines | jim.helpingveterans@gmail.com

The Department of Veterans Affairs announced March 22 the release of 68 new forms that will help speed the processing of veterans disability compensation and pension claims.

The VA will be able to more quickly process disability claims, since disability benefits questionnaires capture important medical information needed to accurately evaluate veterans claims. Disability benefits questionnaires are just one of many changes the VA is implementing to address the backlog of claims.

The new forms bring to 71 the number of documents, called disability benefits questionnaires, or  DBQs, that guide physicians’ reports of medical findings, ensuing the VA has exactly the medical information needed to make a prompt decision.
