Vocational Education and Training Enhancements for Reintegration Assistance Now Act or the VETERAN Act

This bill directs the Department of Veterans Affairs to make changes to the Veterans Benefits Administration's information technology system to ensure that: (1) all original and supplemental claims for Post-9/11 educational assistance are adjudicated electronically, and (2) rules-based processing is used to make decisions with respect to such claims with little human intervention.
