Veterans' Town Hall

Submitted By Allison Bormel

Seventy percent of Bay Area veterans' disability claims have been pending for more than 125 days, with an average wait time of nearly two years. Despite efforts and slight progress, the Oakland VA still has the country's second longest average wait time for a disability claim to be completed.

To address the severe backlog of veterans' disability claims at the Oakland VA, U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell (CA-15) will join Oakland Department of Veterans Affairs Director Douglas Bragg for a Veterans' Town Hall on Saturday, August 24 at 1:30 p.m. Rep. Swalwell and Director Bragg will update veterans on the progress made towards reducing the backlog and take questions from veterans in the audience.
