Released 1/22/15 at House Veterans Affairs Committee | Tags: Testimony

The backlog of claims appeals has been continually growing at the VA.  The time it takes from the filing of the initial appeal document – the Notice of Disagreement (NOD) -- to the issuance of an initial Board of Veterans’ Appeal (BVA) decision is exceedingly long -- 1,255 days in FY 2013 (that is, more than 3 years and 5 months) according to the BVA Chairman.
