Abstract

Policymakers, advocate groups, and national VA leadership express concerns about the timeliness and quality of the Compensation and Pension (C&P) claims adjudication system. This C & P system is defined as the overarching process the Veterans Benefits Administration uses to review and to adjudicate a veteran’s claim for a service connected disability. For this policy review, we present a summary of the appeals process, a summary of delays, outline some change efforts, and conclude our review with an analysis of a proposal to systematically address and to resolve the appeals backlog, the Fully Developed Appeal.
