Please join us for this informative, free seminar for Veterans and their families. Learn the advantages of using the Fully-Developed Claim (FDC) process for filing a service-connected disability Claim. Using the FDC process enables Veterans who have their required military and medical documentation, to reduce claims process wait times and obtain a claim rating within 90 days or less.
