VA to redesign benefits program for service members leaving the military

VA plans to redesign the Benefits Delivery at Discharge program to enable service members to receive disability benefit decisions the day after their discharge. The redesigned program will go into effect October 1.

VA is dedicated to ensuring that Veterans get the benefits they have earned and deserve as quickly and accurately as possible. Changes to the Benefits Delivery at Discharge program will increase VA’s ability to conduct exams, review medical evidence, and process ratings prior to a service member’s release from active duty. In most cases, VA benefits decisions will be provided the day after discharge.  VA to redesign benefits program
