Senator Kirk on Veterans Affairs Backlog
DANVILLE -- The average wait time for a Veteran in Illinois is three-hundred and fifty-three days for a disability claim.
Kirk says it is unacceptable for veterans to have to wait almost a year for benefits and he, along with other lawmakers, will be holding the VA accountable in implementing a plan to lower the wait times.
Kirk's ten point plan to reduce wait times passed into law last month.
