VA Claims in Shredders!

Many of you know I now work full time as a Veterans Specialist for my county

It is my job to assist veterans with filing VA claims as well as accessing other resources available. So setting aside the egregiousness of shredding a pending claim I can perhaps ease some fears of those veterans working with other Veterans Service offices throughout the country: Your VSO should be tracking your claim in the VA system. Your VSO should have a copy of your claim in their own system, and be able to verify its submission. Your VSO should be able to remedy the  VA’s actions and also request an expeditious resolution.

So for those of you working with your county agency… Breathe… your claim is in good hands. For those of you who submitted on your own…get your fannies down to your county office, and work with them to track your claim:)
