Video Description

➡️When deciding to appeal a VA decision, it isn’t easy to know where to begin. There are three ways to file an appeal.

– Fill out the forms that were attached to your decision letter

– Use an appeal form

– Send in your appeal by Mail

Once you decide you want to move forward with the appeal, there are three lanes you could go down.

– Supplemental – if you are adding additional medical evidence on the appeal.

– Higher-level review – If you believe there was enough medical evidence but you want another rater to take a look at your claim

– Board level appeal – This route, you can choose to add more evidence or not before it goes to a veteran judge, take a look, and make a decision. You can also appear at a hearing and plead your case to a judge.
