Backlog of veteran claims still seen at digitalized Milwaukee VA office

by

MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - Milwaukee's Veterans Affairs office is one of three dozen nationwide already using a digitized system of tracking compensation claims.

VA officials say the switch-over can reduce the backlog of claims by moving from a paper-based system to a computerized one.

But a backlog has been caused by more than 10 years of fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The VA Regional Office in Milwaukee still has almost six thousand claims pending.

The system was installed in the Milwaukee VA office last December.
