Your Rights to Appeal Our Decision

According to the VA appeal form, there are three possible routes to take if a veteran disagrees with a decision:

  1. Submitting new evidence in support of the claim. A veteran has a right to send any supplementary evidence to support the application or claim to the address given in the VA letter. Once the evidence has been received, the VA lets a veteran know whether it changes the initial decision.
  2. Appealing. To commence this process, a veteran must write a letter informing the VA about disagreeing with the decision. This letter is called a Notice of Disagreement. It is possible to send additional evidence with the Notice to the address given in the VA letter. The VA will review the documents and will let the veteran know whether a new decision has been made. If an application or a claim cannot be approved, the VA will send a letter notifying the veteran of this decision and asking if the veteran wants to continue the appeal or withdraw it. In the former case, the VA sends the veteran a Statement of the Case that describes the facts, reasons, laws, and regulations they used to make a decision and a VA Form 9, Appeal to Board of Veterans' Appeals.
  3. Challenging the VA's decision at the federal court. A veteran is eligible to file a complaint in the United States District Court.
