A: D2D allows for the submission of an incomplete claim as long as it has the minimum set of identifying information (Veteran found, POA (power of attorney) matches). The Veterans Benefits Management System (VBMS) will accept the submission to the eFolder and send back a Claim ID and the Claim date of when the submission hit the VLER Gateway.
Please note: The D2D project team strongly encourages VSOs to submit only fully developed claims (FDC). However, D2D will permit a VSO organization to submit an incomplete claim in accordance with existing VA rules and policies.
A: The VSO system decides how to send Batch submissions. The submissions can be sent real-time or set to be sent on a recurring schedule. It is up the VSO system to decide how and when to send Forms and Attachments. It is advised to send D2D Attachments at off-peak hours to avoid clogging up Network traffic.
A: Batch submissions are treated as single submissions by D2D and can be tracked individually. Each transmission will have its own unique transmission ID, date and time-stamp, and other identifying traits.
