ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Federal inspectors gave the Anchorage Veterans Administration regional office a poor review for its handling of disability claims – a 29 percent error rate.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that has resulted in delays, underpayments and denials of services for some veterans.

Alaska had the highest number of veterans per capita of any state as of the last census, at nearly 18 percent of the population.”

“In response to questions from the Daily News, Clark said the Anchorage office suffered from turnover in key positions during the past year, and its performance doesn’t “currently compare favorably” to other regional offices.”

“Tammy Schuyler, president of the AFGE Local 3028 union that represents Alaska VA workers, says significant problems have yet to been resolved.”
