VA Undergoes Restructuring to Improve Veterans Disability Benefits Services

by Staff Blogger | January 26th, 2015

When veterans are no longer able to work due to a disabling medical condition that’s related to their service to our nation, they may be entitled to receive veterans disability benefits. However, gaining access to these benefits through the multiple facets of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) can often be an arduous task to complete. One of the main reasons for this issue is the fact that the VA is divided into numerous smaller organizations that often operate independently of one another. To help address the problem, VA officials recently announced a reorganization that will help the agency’s different entities operate as one. Reports from 12 News Now indicate the VA currently has more than nine different organizations under its umbrella that host more than a dozen different websites. Each of these groups and sites often require different pieces of information to be utilized. This prompted officials to downsize the number of organizations under the VA to just five. Furthermore, the new organizations are expected to work more closely with one another in a, “ seamless, integrated, and responsive” manner. Officials stated they hope the reorganization of the VA can be completed by next summer.
