Notice of Disagreement

What should you do if you disagree with the final determination? 

The first the thing you should do is write this letter. 
Next make sure that you send it with a tracking number.


DATE

VIA Certified Mail, RRR


VARO Address


Reference (Your Name, SSN, Claim number and any other reference numbers on the award [denial] letter)


Dear Sir/Madame;


I am in receipt of your letter of DATE. In that letter you have denied my application for a disability rating I claimed DATE.


Please accept this letter as my Notice of Disagreement (NOD) with your decision.


My reason for this NOD is (briefly describe).


I request a Decision Review Officer Process (DRO) appeal and I request a personal hearing.


Respectfully,


YOUR NAME

ADDRESS
************************

Note that the appeal letter does not go into detail. That can come later. DO NOT display anger or frustration. This is a business letter and it is counterproductive to believe that you should tell them all that's on your mind at this point in time.  Once again...there is a time and place for everything. You will soon receive a notice that your appeal is in process.

Now is the time to decide if you will find a lawyer to help you appeal this decision. We recommend that almost every appeal be referred to a veterans attorney unless you are well versed at medical and legal jargon.
