TRANCRIPT
Mike: Hey folks, welcome to another episode of theSITREP. If you had an appeal for VA Disability denied or rejected, in the past two to three years, by the Board of Veterans Appeals, then this video is seriously important for you to listen to and here is Paul to explain why.

Paul: Hey everybody, according to the Board of Veterans Appeals, a number of Veterans, who submitted a notice of disagreement, with the Board of Veterans Appeals, may have been mistakenly rejected, at no fault of the Veteran. If, between February 19th, 2019 and March 23rd, 2021, you submitted a notice of disagreement, specifically VA form 10182, to the Board of Veterans Appeals and it was rejected for being ‘UNTIMELY,” that’s the key word here, “UNTIMELY,” then there is a possibility this was a mistake. If you fall into this timeline and believe your claim was mistakenly rejected for timeliness, then you need to contact the Clerk of the Board no later than March 23rd, 2022. To contact the Clerk of the Board, send a letter to PO Box 27063, Washington, DC 20038 or fax it to 1-844-678-8979. In the letter, you need to specifically state that you are asking the board to “recalculate timeliness” and make sure you include the Veteran’s full name, claim number or social security number, the date of the rating decision you appealed to the Board of Veterans Appeals, and the date of your original VA form 10182 that they told you was untimely. I know this is a lot of information, but you can find all of it, word for word, in the video description below and I humbly ask you to please help spread the word by sharing this video on whatever social media platforms you may use. This was not the fault of a Veteran affected by this situation and they need to know it can be corrected so please help us spread the word. As always, theSITREP is working hard to put out information you can count on… so be sure to hit the subscribe button below, so you can keep up with the benefits you earned and deserve.

ADDITIONAL VA INFORMATION
The Dept. of Veterans Affairs has three, separate administrations aimed to serve our country’s Veterans with an assortment of benefits that address the unique needs of every Veteran. To be sure you are interacting with the proper administration within VA, here are short descriptions for each VA administration:

VHA: VA’s Veterans Health Administration is the largest integrated health care network in the United States, with 1,255 health care facilities serving 9 million enrolled Veterans each year.

VBA: Veterans can earn a range of benefits that help them transition back to civilian life in the country they fought to defend. Through the Veterans Benefits Administration, VA helps servicemembers transition out of military service, and assists with education, home loans, life insurance and much more.

NCA: The job of the National Cemetery Administration is to make sure those who served this nation are never forgotten. NCA provides dignified burial services for Veterans and eligible family members by maintaining 142 cemeteries as national shrines and providing lasting tributes that commemorate their service and sacrifice to our nation.

The Board of Veterans’ Appeals has learned that a limited number of Veterans may have had their Board Appeal forms (VA Form 10182, Decision Review Request: Board Appeal (Notice of Disagreement)) mistakenly rejected for being untimely.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Board is sending out a wide notice to help ensure no other Veterans were impacted by this. If you filed a VA Form 10182 with the Board between February 19, 2019, and March 23, 2021, and believe it may have been improperly rejected as untimely, please send a letter to the “Clerk of the Board” at P.O. Box 27063, Washington, DC 20038 or via fax to 1-844-678-8979 no later than March 1, 2022.
In your letter, state you are asking the Board to “RECALCULATE TIMELINESS” and be careful to include the Veteran’s full name, claim number or SSN, the date of the rating decision you appealed to the Board, and the date of your original VA Form 10182 appeal form that the Board told you was untimely.
