How Long Do VA Claims Take to Go Through?

Unfortunately, the Department of Veterans Affairs takes a very long time when processing VA claims. In 2006, the average time to process a VA claim through regional offices was 127 days. More than four months! How horrible would it be to wait four months only to be denied veterans benefits?

This isn’t a new problem, either. A VA employee testified to the GAO about veterans claims in 2002, saying that it was a long-standing issue and that “this isn’t a problem that snuck up on them.” The VA is well aware that veterans of World War II are dying at a high rate while they try to wait out delays in processing their VA claims.
