A new analysis of backlogs at the Department of Veterans Affairs shows that former service members in the Puget Sound are waiting an average of 235 days to get their disability claims resolved.
The project by the Center for Investigative Reporting shows that the delays are greatest in urban areas, such as Oakland and San Diego. Check out the C.I.R. interactive map on wait times here.
Veterans are more likely to have their claims resolved more quickly in places like Boise, Idaho and Missoula, Mont.
