We have recently learned that Benefit Review Officers Nora Astorga and Elizabeth Benavides, both assigned to the Houston East Field Office, retired this month. We are sorry to see these knowledgeable and effective BROs leave the Division, however, we extend them our best wishes in whatever new adventures they choose to pursue in the future. 

We have no information concerning replacements for Ms. Astorga and Ms. Benavides. There are currently no job postings on the Division’s website for BRO positions. For now, disputes in the Houston East Field Office which would otherwise be assigned to these BROs are being handled by BROs in other Division field offices.
