Provides that if a veteran who is a claimant dies before completing the submission of a claim for benefits, the person who would receive any accrued benefit(s) due to such veteran shall be treated as the claimant for purposes of completing submission of the claim.

Directs the Secretary to contract with a private entity to evaluate the training and assessment programs for VBA employees.
