Veterans Claims Clinic Hosted by: The Veterans Benefit Administration

Lincoln VA Regional Office

WHO: Discharging Servicemembers, Veterans, their families and survivors

What: Claims clinic - Discharging Servicemembers, Veterans, and their fami- lies, and survivors will be able to file disability claims, submit evidence, speak with a claims processor, speak with a Veterans Service Officer from the Nebraska Department of Veterans Affairs, and in some cases have a VA medical exam completed all in one day. Having all the services available in one place can significantly cut down the time it takes to get a disability claim Rating Decision. Typically a Veteran who submits a disability claim during a Claims Clinic will spend about 4 hours from in processing through the medical exam process with a Rating Decision being completed in approximately two weeks. Where as a Veteran who submits a disability claim through the tradition- al process waits an average of 100 days for a Rating Decision. In addition, to the Lincoln Regional Office representatives the Nebraska Department of Veter- ans Affairs Veteran Service Officers (VSO) will be available to assist with an- swering questions and filing claims.
