Recently the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced that they have improved their online tool so that vets can better track their benefits claims appeals.

“For the first time ever, veterans can see their place on the Board of Veterans’ Appeals’ docket, including the number of appeals that are ahead of them,” said the VA Secretary.

It also provides alerts and estimates in regards to how long an appeal may take to be resolved (as of this month, the average is 935.9 days).
