Appeals Modernization Act

National VFW - 5/12/2017

On Tuesday, the VFW testified before the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee on H.R. 457, the VA Appeals Modernization Act of 2017. The bill would create more options for veterans appealing their claims, including one option to take their appeal directly to the Board of Veterans Appeals and another to request a higher level VA adjudicator to make a decision on the claim. It also aims to better notify veterans on the status of their appeals and submit reports on how long it’s taking appeals to go through the process. A modernized appeals system must be responsive to future needs of veterans. This change to the appeals system will allow VA to properly adjudicate the growing number of appeals for the 21st century, providing veterans with more due process protections and non-adversarial options for resolution at the local level, potentially avoiding years of contentious appeals. VA officials and VFW National Veterans Service Director Ryan Gallucci testified that they are supportive of the proposed legislation, which will hopefully have immediate, positive effects for all veterans.
