rsm2006 replied to jenni2005's question in Appealing Your Veterans Compensation Disability Claims NOD, DRO, BVA, USCAVCHi, this is my first time on this website, I have been in the process of an appeal since 11/2011, I went through the american legion to help me with this and also my county veteran's office. hoping to one day get a letter in the mail putting this to an end. my next step which has been at this stage since last summer, is a "video interview" with the VA law judge. My claim started 2009, the denied it initially and then thats when i asked for the american legion to help, submitted an appeal again, came back 0% service connected, which took about a year or more, then I was awarded 10% and I appealed that in 11/2011, and that staged in stage on until 06/2015 and that's when I get the NOD, and then I returned the papers, and have been sitting in video mode since. not sure what the next step is, I know it isn't right for it to take this long for people that sacrificed for their country! hope you find out something soon!!
