U. S. veterans applying for VA health benefits online will have easier and faster time doing so

Last week the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs announced that it had upgraded its online application form for health benefits.

The revised online application provides enhanced navigation features that make it easier and faster for veterans to apply for their health care benefits. This new version also allows veterans to save a copy of the completed form for their personal records.

Most significantly veterans can now save their application to their local desktop and return to the application at any time without having to start over. Previously, veterans had to complete the form in a single session.

This updated online form, along with the revised VA Form 10-10EZ, reduces the collection of information from Veterans by eliminating some questions.

In addition, there are minor changes to simplify the wording of questions and provide clarity in the instructions. Further enhancements to the online application are expected to be delivered in increments throughout 2010.

Veterans may complete or download the 10-10EZ form at the VA health eligibility website which can be found here.
