Episode 51: Delayed BVA Decisions

On this episode of Veterans Legal Lowdown, the CCK team is discussing the mailing delay that affected decision letters from the Board of Veterans Appeals. Typically, if a veteran is unhappy with the outcome of their claim, the veteran has 120 days from the date the Board mailed the decision letter regarding their claim to file an appeal with the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. After this 120-day period, the Board decision becomes final and the veteran must restart the entire claims process if they still wish to seek VA benefits. Join us as we explain the impact of this delay on veterans looking to file an appeal.
