“On Sept. 17, the department reported it had 895,248 compensation and pension entitlement claims pending, with 592,792, or 66 percent, pending for more than 125 days.

In sheer numbers, this marks a marginal improvement since April, when VA reported what veterans groups described as a staggering backlog of claims — 897,566. Though officials managed to whittle that backlog down by 2,318 claims during the past six months, the number of claims pending for more than 125 days edged up 1.2 percent during that period.”
