VA Disability Backlogs Also Climbing

While we complain about the delays in Scial Securty disability, Charles Hall in his excellent blog points out that there is a parrallel universe in the world of VA disability:

From VA Watchdog dot Org:

According to the Monday Morning Workload Report (MMWR) of the Veterans’ Benefits Administration dated January 5, 2009, the backlog for veterans’ benefits claims stood at 808,607. Report is here

The same report for May 11, 2009 shows the backlog at 916,456. That report is here …

This is an increase of nearly 108,000 claims in the backlog in just a bit over four months … an increase of 13.3%. See Mr. Hall’s blog here:
