Before you can file your appeal to the Board of Veteran's Appeals, you will need to acquire a Statement of the Case from the specific regional office, medical center, or national cemetery that denied your claim.

1.  You have one year from the date the VA mailed its decision, or 60 days from the date the VA mailed the Statement of the Case, whichever is longer.  This means the date in which they attempted to notify you, not the date you pulled it out of the mailbox.  If there isn't a postal stamp on the envelope or you didn't keep the envelope the denial came in, you will want to go by the date on the paperwork showing when it was prepared and/or signed.

2.  Read everything on the denial letter you received from the VA.

3.  Fill out the Notice of Disagreement form on the left and send it, along with all the requested attachments, to the specific regional office, medical center, or national cemetery that denied your claim.

4.  Once the denying office receives your Notice of Disagreement, they will send you a Statement of the Case.

You now have everything you need in order to complete and submit your appeal.
