VA improperly paid out more than $300,000 in disability claims
WASHINGTON — The Department of Veterans Affairs handed out about $311,000 in improper disability payments after an agency employee miscalculated claims, according to the department’s inspector general.
The overpayments stemmed from a single employee at the VA’s Little Rock Regional Office in Arkansas making bad decisions and improperly processing paperwork during the disability claims process, and the failure of managers to provide the proper oversight on 11 disability rating decisions, according to a report by the VA Inspector General’s Office. The employee, who was not named in the IG report, has resigned.
