Veterans in Puerto Rico face long waits and high error rates in their fight for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
According to VA reports, 58 percent of Veterans’ claims at the San Juan Regional Office take longer than 125 days to decide. A 2009 audit by VA’s Office of Inspector General found errors in 40 percent of the claims VA’s OIG reviewed.
Bergmann & Moore regularly holds free workshops in Puerto Rico educating Veterans about VA benefits they earned. Our staff will be on hand at two Veterans Benefits Workshops in Puerto Rico in July providing free VA claims advice. Other organizations will be on hand providing other free services.
