Question

Today being a Federal Holiday, how will that effect vets that will have their 60 day time limit expire today. Does VA add in an extra day due to the holiday ?

That would not even be an issue. They don’t sit there trying to see who send in the information at exactly 60 days. You will be lucky if they look at it in six months. If the information is there, they use it in your claim if not then they cannot use it.

The 60 day limit only means that they will let the claim sit without action so you can send information to support your claim. If nothing is received they (MIGHT) move on your claim without the additional information but if you send the info within one year, they will go back to see if the additional information support a different rating.

If the 60th day falls on a weekend or holiday, it is extended until the next business day. Also, I believe, it's the date of mailing, not the date received by the VA, which is why we should always use USPS return receipt FedEx or UPS, to track and confirm delivery, of the correspondence. Always appeal if it's close. I've had a denial reversed just on this issue.
