The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) wants providers working with veterans to know that they are in a position to help our nation’s veterans and their families by understanding the Fully Developed Claims (FDC) program.

The FDC program enables veterans and their survivors to submit all evidence and medical records at the time they submit their claim. FDC’s are processed more quickly by VA than traditional claims and help reduce the backlog. Homeless veteran claims are among the priority groups whose claims are addressed first.

VA is sponsoring a webinar series targeting professionals who treat, serve, or otherwise interact with veterans in their job. The free, one hour webinar will help give a basic understanding of the program and provide participants with the most up to date resources to help veterans and their families submit FDC applications.

The webinar will be offered on July 17th at 9:30 AM and again at 1:30 PM ET. You can learn more and register by clicking here.
