VA accepting online applications

The Department of Veterans Affairs announced that online applications are now accepted from veterans, survivors and other claimants filing initial applications for disability compensation, pension, education, and vocational rehabilitation and employment benefits without the additional requirement to submit a signed paper copy of the application.

The department will now process applications received through its online application Web site VONAPP without the claimant's signature.
