GAO report tells VA to tighten up individual Unemployability Benefits
This report that more than 220,000 veterans receiving individual unemployability (IU) SHOULD READ WITH GREAT CARE!

IU now costs the VA more than $3.1 billion a year . And they think that's way to much.
This report, literally put ALL IU claims in jeopardy

No one will employ any one who has been unemployed for a long time. I believe the term is "unemployable" They hate people with a big gap in their resume. Veteran suicides will go up substantially, too many people are barely holding on as it is.

check your link will ya, Monk? It isn't working, they either pulled it or it broken.

Good link: http://searching.gao.gov/query.html?qt=Va+Individual+un...
