Your Right to File an Appeal Against Our Decision

According to the VA appeal form, if a veteran disagrees with a judgment, he or she may pursue one of three options:

  • Making a fresh submission of evidence in support of the claim A veteran has the right to submit any supplemental proof in support of his or her application or claim to the VA at the location specified in the letter from the VA. Once the evidence has been received, the VA will notify the veteran whether or not the original decision has been changed.
  • Appealing. Initially, the veteran must write to the VA and express his or her dissatisfaction with the decision, which will kick-start this procedure. This kind of communication is referred to as a Notice of Disagreement. It is possible to transmit further proof with the Notice to the VA letter, which may be found at the address provided in the letter. The Department of Veterans Affairs will evaluate the records and notify the veteran if a new decision has been reached. Whether a veteran’s application or claim is denied, the VA will send him or her a letter informing him or her of the decision and asking if the veteran wants to pursue the appeal further or to drop it completely. A Statement of the Case, which summarizes the facts, reasons, laws, and regulations that were considered in reaching a judgment, is sent to the veteran in the first instance, and a VA Form 9, Appeal to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals, is sent in the second instance.
  • The Veterans Administration’s decision is being challenged in federal court. A veteran may be able to bring a complaint in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.
