Fox News - Study Shows Veterans Must Navigate Hundreds Of Forms, More Than A Dozen Agencies For Services
Published July 02, 2013
A new study released ahead of the Fourth of July holiday sheds more light on the tangle of paperwork facing America's veterans -- showing they're up against as many as 613 forms across 18 agencies as they seek services.
The study by the American Action Forum also found the paperwork -- in part the result of roughly 31 million Veterans Affairs claims alone each year -- takes federal employees roughly 43.3 million hours to process.
