Thanks to new platforms and improvements, a veteran can track a claim they made through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)  — i.e. check its status — easier than ever, and without ever having to call, mail or even leave their home.

That’s because the ability to do so is available online. If you’re a vet who’s made a claim — disability or otherwise — you can access its progress and other details by simply clicking here.

You can also check the status of an appeal with the same link (this one).

Veterans — as well as qualified dependents — may be able to receive care, compensation or other benefits, depending upon their situation.
