Map: Veterans stuck in disability claims backlog limbo

Now you can compare backlogs and wait times at the 58 VA regional offices on an interactive map provided by the Bay Citizen.

At the time of this posting, the map shows that 821,143 military veterans are waiting with an avreage wait time of 273 days. The interactive map gives a pretty clear visual that our military veterans are stuck in disability claims backlog limbo.

Jeffrey Hall knows the look of an empty pantry.

“I do remember some days when we only had crackers in the house,” said Hall, 45, who recalled frequent trips to a food bank on the North Side. “A family of four, and crackers and water.”
