VA Announces Expansion of Disability Evaluation System Pilot
Date:11/7/2008

All Military Services Now Taking Part

WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Wounded service members leaving the military will have easier, quicker access to their veterans benefits due to the expansion of a pilot program that will offer streamlined disability evaluations that will reach 19 military installations, representing all military departments.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced today the expansion of the Disability Evaluation System (DES) pilot which started in the National Capitol Region in coordination with the Department of Defense (DoD).

This single evaluation will help us do just that," Tom Pamperin, deputy director of VA's Compensation and Pension Service, said. "The program expansion will allow wounded warriors a smoother and more efficient transition to getting services from the VA."

The initial phase of the expansion started on Oct 1, with Fort Meade, Md. and Fort Belvoir, Va. The remaining 17 installations will begin upon completion of site preparations and personnel orientation and training, during an 8-month period from November 2008 to May 2009.

"The decision to expand the pilot was based upon a favorable review that focused on whether the pilot met its timeliness, effectiveness, transparency, and customer and stakeholder satisfaction objectives," said Sam Retherford, director, officer and enlisted personnel management, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness. "This expansion extends beyond the national capital region, so that more diverse data from other geographic areas can be evaluat
