CalVet Hiring Veterans Claims Representatives to Help Ease VA Claims Backlog

The California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) is hiring 36 Veterans Claims Representatives (VCR) to speed processing of benefits claims filed by California veterans and caught in the massive VA backlog. VCRs will review claims that have been pending 125 days or longer to ensure they are fully developed and ready for adjudication.

A 12-member VCR team will be hired for each VA/CalVet regional office in Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego. The limited-term (2-year) positions and $3 million in funding for the VCRs was made available in the Governor’s 2013/14 budget.
