Having all the services available in one place can significantly cut down the time it takes to get a disability claim Rating Decision. Typically a Veteran who submits a disability claim during a Claims Clinic will spend about 4 hours from in processing through the medical exam process with a Rating Decision being completed in approximately two weeks. Whereas a Veteran who submits a disability claim through the traditional process waits an average of 100 days for a Rating Decision. In addition to the Lincoln Regional Office, Nebraska Department of Veterans' Affairs Veteran Service Officers (VSOs) will be available to assist with answering questions and filing claims.
