613 FORMS TO GET BENEFITS?
Vets Must Deal With 18 Agencies
By Harold Hutchison
A study by the American Action Forum has revealed that veterans have to fill out as many as 613 forms – across 18 federal agencies – in order to get all the benefits they are entitled to. The study comes on the eve of the 4th of July holiday.
According to a report by Fox News, the AAF’s report outlines just what America’s veterans are up against after they conclude their service. “Navigating 18 agencies and more than 600 forms has produced absurd results and unnecessary delays,” the organization was quoted by the Fox News report.
Is it time to streamline the way that veterans’ benefits are provided?
