Site links veterans to benefits

The Department of Veterans Affairs officially launches a site today to help veterans file for pension and health benefits online.

The system, called Veterans On Line Applications (VONAPP), will make it easier for veterans to apply for services ranging from disability compensation to pensions.

Another part of the service, called VA Form 10-10 EZ, can be used by veterans to enroll in the VA's health care system. Both are available at www.vabenefits.vba.va.gov/vonapp.

The health care benefit filing also can be reached at www.va.gov/1010ez.htm.

Last year, about 3.8 million people received medical services from the VA. More than 2.6 million received monthly disability checks or pensions. In both cases, veterans had to complete a hard copy of a form and mail it in, then wait months or even longer while it was processed and verified.
