How To Appeal A VA Disability Rating Decision
Once a Veteran has applied for VA Disability Compensation benefits, he/she will receive a Disability Rating Decision from the VA. VA Disability Ratings range from 0 to 100 percent. If you believe that you have received a low rating, it is advisable to Appeal the VA Rating decision. But remember, you only have one year from the date of the VA Rating Decision to get in the required paperwork stating exactly what you are appealing your VA Disability claim.
File A Notice Of Disagreement With The VA
If you feel that your VA compensation award is simply not enough, your next step is to file a Notice of Disagreement (NOD) to appeal your Veterans Disability claim. A VA Notice of Disagreement is a written statement that states that you disagree with your most recent VA Rating Decision and that you want to appeal the Rating VA Decision. There are several ways that you, as a Veteran can go about filing the Notice of Disagreement.
