VA’s New “Decision Ready Claims” (DRC) Program – Response to Applications in 30 Days!

  • Surviving spouses,
  • Transitioning service members may file pre-discharge claims less than 90 days from departure from military service.

How to file a DRC Claim

If you wish to file a claim under the DRC program, you must work with an accredited Veteran Service Organization (VSO). The VSO representative will ensure all supporting evidence, such as military service records and medical exams, is attached; thus, allowing claims processors to make decisions within 30 days.

I am the daughter of a U.S. Army veteran from WWII, stationed in Japan and The Phillipines during the post-war occupation, and a U.S. Marine Corps Drill Sergeant, stationed at Parris Island during the Korean War. Following that tradition, I married a U.S. Army Military Policeman, stationed in Baumholder Germany in the early '80s. Maintaining the website and writing for Legacy Beyond Valor is my way of giving back to the men and women returning from U.S. military service with a need for help finding their way back into civilian society.
