Report details VA troubles with processing benefits

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

A inspection of the Columbia VA Regional Office found problems with veterans receiving benefits.

The VA Office Of Inspector General says 40-percent of disability claims reviewed were not accurately processed.

The office says it looked specifically at claims that were more likely to have errors, so 40 percent doesn't represent the overall accuracy.

The report also says many of the problems were caused by lack of training and mismanaged priorities.

The Office of Inspector General recommended more training to improve the problems.
