Your Rights to Appeal Our Decision
VA 4107c Form explains how claimants can appeal and how they can send the VA more evidence, if necessary. It is possible to choose either one or both of these options.
To start the appeal process, a claimant must send a Notice of Disagreement to the VA. If the claim is not granted then, the VA replies with the attached Statement of the Case which contains the justification of their decision. Form 4107c VA also recommends visiting the VA website to find a «plain language» pamphlet describing the appeal process.
VA Decision Appeal form allows claimants to send to the VA supplementary evidence in support of the claim. It must be directed to the address given in the VA's decision notice letter. There are two ways to present evidence. A written response is usually reserved for documents and written statements with the explanation of how they can change the initial decision. There is also an option to request a personal hearing with a local VA office employee, where written evidence can be shared and witnesses can speak on a claimant's behalf. Any new evidence is reviewed by the VA, and then they let claimant know if they can grant a claim. If it is not the case, the new evidence along with the record of a local hearing is sent to the Board of Veterans' Appeals.
