SAFETY HARD TO ACHIEVE -ARKANSAS CITY, Kas. (U.ffl-- OfVA Sena tor's Praise ; - ^By,MARGARET CHASE SMITH ... · _ (U. S. Senator From Maine) SKOWHEGAN, Me., Nov. 2.--An important government agency that take's-a great deal of unfair abuse is the veterans administration. As a senator, I am constantly asking'.the VA to review.its decisions-"in: the cases of Maine'veterans who-, have come to me and stated that they were not being fairly. · treated. At times I hav been "critical. Recently when I received} complaints from- veteran stating: that, they had. not receive their' .special insurance dividend and reporting that it was lumore that 'this".was caused by , : allege loss of records, I asked the V. about this and requested a report I received an excellent report an I want to pass it on to you becaus it clears up an important matter The deputy administrator of th VA reported, among other things the following: 99 Per Cent Paid " . . . '-Thus 'far in..the specia dividend project, payment ha been made.- to' more than 99 pe cent of 'all 'living veterans wh have applied. More than 14% mi lion checks actually /have bee dispatched to living veterans an there remains only 75.000 applica tions 'awaiting final action. Th small __ number' remaining. repre sents * "problem cases' which re quire considerable investlgatio before payment can tfe.made. Th reasons, for delay in these case are so numerous and in some in dividual cases are so complex tha »; general statement as ; to whe payment will, be made, cannot b stated in general terms. -"We are aware of our obliga tibns to ..-render veterans the serv · Ice to which they are so justly -en titled, and I assure you that thes "problem cases''are being handle With the greatest practicable dis patch, but processing them i necessarily time consuming, be cause in most instances it is re quired that further information-be got from either the service depart ments .or veterans administration offices outside of Washington. Th patient indulgence of those veter ans who have not yet been pait must -be solicited until we are able to complete' action ' on their applications. . : 80 Per Cent Settled :"With 'respect' to-the payreieni of special -dividends on'-'nationa service life insurance of decease: veterans . . . approximately SO pei cent of these cases has been paid Several, additional processing steps - are necessary-in these cases- which are not necessary in the cases of living" veterans. These'steps are occasioned largely because of the legal - and . administrative, difficul ties- inherent; in markingxpaymen' of any "kind" to .survivors of de ^ceased veterans. First-of all, i *must be determined whether. the Insurance was in'force or lap'sec when the.-.x'eteran' died. If the in surahce ;was.-in-force, ..the dividend 1» payable. ~to-'the beneficiary- or beneficiaries currently receiving death benefits,, or if the death benefits have been completely paid to the ·-.beneficiary, or beneficiaries last to receive such benefits. "If the '"insurance lapsed prior to the death- of the 'Veteran tc whom it was issued, the dividenc ig payable to the estate of the veteran, through his executor or administrator, .if there. is one. If not:.-- .payment is .made directly to those persons' entitled to the personal;,.; estate of the veteran under the laws of . . ; the. ; state of which he.;-died. a. legal.resident A special claim: is required in these latter cases, ;an'd-proper forms, must be sent directly by the veterans administration to the person or persons - entitled to receive any dividends" which 'may be payable. Thus; -additional-processing: steps are required to separate .the accounts for which''payment is to be made to beneficiaries .from those for which payment is to be made ·to estates. When the necessary determination as to whorls eligible to receive the dividends is made, payment is ' authoribed to those" persons without- further delay. Co-operation Assured "I fully recognize that it gives no solace to .the. person who !s awaiting payment to learn that his case is an exceptional one ; and that his fellows have been paid; in fact, such knowledge -may well 'be only further'aggravating, but I believe you.will..understand that in any operation -involving so many millions of.. individuals there., are always a'goodly number of tag ends. However,'..every endeavor is being made to make settlement in aS unpaid cases and I assure you the work will be carried on with vigor." - I think we can well be more patient with the VA on this matter that is-much .like, settling a will. It often takes-a lot of work and time ..and just-can't be done overnight. * (Dist, -.by. United Features) Soviets Meet For Big Party MOSCOW, Nov. 2.
