V.A. reaching out to vets to work through backlog
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The Department of Veterans Affairs is reaching out to veterans, hoping to clear up a backlog of veterans who have applied for benefits.
They're asking veterans to file a fully developed claim--or FDC.
It contains some extra information that helps the V.A. make a decision on the claim more quickly.
Veterans who file an FDC may be eligible for retroactive benefits dating back to last year.
