The Little Rock RO is actively engaged in the Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES), a joint program with the Department of Defense (DOD) to improve the disability rating process. The program aims to create a single disability exam conducted to VA standards and used by both VA and DOD, develop a single disability rating completed by VA that is binding on both departments, and provide payments of VA benefits within 30 days of a Servicemember’s separation from service. On July 1, 2011, the Little Rock RO opened an IDES office at Little Rock Air Force Base. The office is staffed by a Military Service Coordinator, who has an average of 10 to 15 active cases per month.
