In partnership with current and former service members, the National Council on Disability (NCD) – an independent federal agency that advises the President, Congress and other federal agencies on disability policy – has released a report titled, “Clearing the Backlog and Facilitating Benefits for America’s Veterans.” The 80-page report includes opinions and evaluations by key stakeholders, buoyed by the insights of experts, in addressing the current state of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability claims backlog.
NCD thanks Paralyzed Veterans of America for numerous, invaluable contributions in preparing this report.
“In the same spirit with which Americans honor all Veterans for their service to our country, the National Council on Disability has chosen National Military Families month and the day after Veterans Day to offer these recommendations to help clear the backlog in getting necessary supports to U.S. Veterans,” said NCD member Captain Jonathan Kuniholm, USMC (Retired). “Making good on the promises made to Veterans with service-connected disabilities and health issues, financial uncertainty, and other hardships when adjusting to civilian life in a timely manner is the least that we can do for those ‘who shall have borne the battle.’ NCD hopes this report can facilitate meaningful improvements across numerous areas of concern.”
“NCD’s findings and recommendations focus on necessary actions that need to be taken to reduce the VA claims backlog,” said NCD member Janice Lehrer-Stein. “Improvements have been made, but more needs to be done. NCD recognizes the important and ongoing progress that has been made to date and remains available to assist in the collaboration of all federal agencies to find the best and most coordinated way forward.”

SACRAMENTO, CA – July marks 236 years of independence for America, and yet, not all Americans have the opportunity to live independently. July 26 marks the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (http://www.ada.gov/), which established a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Twenty-two years ago, the ADA cited that “society has tended to isolate and segregate individuals with disabilities, and, despite some improvements, such forms of discrimination against individuals with disabilities continue to be a serious and pervasive social problem.” Although great strides have been made, this continues to hold true for many people living with disabilities who, on a daily basis, still confront barriers to equality and independence.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 requires the Department of Justice, along with other Federal agencies, to provide “technical assistance to individuals and insitutions that have rights or duties” under this law. The Department produced technical assistance materials for its 1991 ADA regulations implementing Title II (State and local governments) and Title III (public accommodations and non-profit service providers) and again in 2010 when the Department revised its ADA regulations for both titles.
