HOW TO FILE A NOTICE OF DISAGREEMENT FOR YOUR VETERANS’ DISABILITY BENEFITS

Veteran Front Flag

If you believe the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) was wrong to deny your application for veterans’ disability benefits, you can appeal by filing a Notice of Disagreement (NOD).

The Savannah veterans’ disability attorneys at our firm can help you every step of the way. Contact us today for a free legal consultation.

However, you have one year from the decision date to file an NOD, otherwise the VA’s decision is final and cannot be changed.

Take the time to carefully review the VA’s notification letter before filling out a NOD form so you can determine all of the areas where you and the VA disagree. Take note of the VA’s reasoning and explanation of evidence you need to provide to be granted a higher disability rating.

Once you determine the specific decisions you disagree with, you are ready to begin filling out the checklist on the NOD form.

The checklist has boxes for each area of contention. For example, if you disagree with a decision about one of your disabilities, you can check the box for that condition and also check a box indicating the aspect of the decision you disagree with, such as:

  • The VA rating of your disability
  • Effective date for awarding benefits
  • Connection of the disability to your service

The NOD form also contains a narrative section, which is the most important part of the form. This is where you can point out any issues or details the VA missed or failed to consider. You can add extra pages to include medical documentation, test results or other evidence to make your case.

If you disagree with the VA’s ruling that your disability is not connected to your service, you will need to provide evidence showing your injuries occurred in the military. Evidence could include private treatment records, the write-up for a medal or other official documentation.

If you want to file a NOD, you should consider seeking help from an experienced veterans’ disability attorney. An attorney can help make sure your NOD form is submitted on time and includes all of the necessary evidence to give you the best chance of overturning a denied application.

The Nye Law Group’s Savannah veterans’ disability attorneys are thoroughly familiar with the veterans’ disability process and we know what it takes to be successful. We offer a complimentary case evaluation and only charge legal fees if your case has a favorable outcome.
