VA Eliminates Verification Report

The Department of Veterans Affairs has announced that it is cutting red tape for veterans by eliminating the need for them to complete an annual Eligibility Verification Report (EVR). VA will implement a new process for confirming eligibility for benefits, and staff that had been responsible for processing the old form will instead focus on eliminating the compensation claims backlog. All beneficiaries currently receiving VA pension benefits will receive a letter from VA explaining these changes and providing instructions on how to continue to submit their unreimbursed medical expenses. More information about VA pension benefits is available at the VA Pension Benefits webpage at www.benefits.va.gov/pension and about other VA benefit programs on the joint Department of Defense–VA web portal eBenefits at www.ebenefits.va.gov
