VA Benefit Enrollment Program Window Shortening

By September 20, 2017VA Disability

Beginning October 1, 2017, servicemembers who wish to resolve disability claims before leaving the military must enroll in the “Benefits Delivery at Discharge” program 90 days from separation rather than the current 60 days.  

Additionally, Quick Start, a program that allows troops with 59 or fewer days left to begin their claims process, will also end.

Late filed claims will result in veterans waiting an average of 90 days after separation to get a decision on benefits.  Many claims are not complete when service members leave active duty, and submitting disability claims between 90 and 180 days before separation will ensure claims can be fully developed.
