Most veterans are aware they can appeal their compensation and pension decisions from the VA if they disagree with an entire VA decision or even just a portion of their decision. An appeal is a veteran's disagreement with a determination by VA to deny a benefit, request for reconsideration of a determination, or direct appeal to a higher level, such as the Board of Veterans' Appeals (Board).
Have you been denied your VA Disability Benefits?
When trying to file for disability benefits, the odds might seem to be stacked against you.
Part of the problem is because the VA is so backlogged with claims, the VA Raters (RVSRs) at the Regional Offices (RO) don’t have the time to fully develop each case. An average time the RVSR has to adjudicate your claim is about 35 minutes.
