Hey Jim, A shout-out to remind you that effective February 19, 2019, there will only be one VA appeals system. What does this mean? I suggest that if you have an appealable issue and have yet to file an appeal, to do so IMMEDIATELY.
I am working very hard to get as many appeals filed under the wire, so we can still get appeals filed under the legacy system. I am doing that as the new system removes certain rights from veterans that otherwise might be available to veterans or family members under the existing appeals system, particularly as it comes to getting new evidence before the VA for consideration.
