The Department of Veterans Affairs has decreased the processing time for returning students' GI Bill benefit requests.

Improved claims automation is credited for the 50 percent speed spike, compared with the 2012 fiscal year.   

Now, the VA typically processes new students' initial claims in less than 20 days, and returning students' supplemental claims in less than eight days.
