Filing a veterans disability benefits claim in Maine can be a complicated process. It's not unusual for a claim to be denied. But decisions made by the Veterans Administration (VA) over benefit eligibility can be appealed. You have options. You have the legal right to file a Notice of Disagreement (NOD). You can request another review by the Regional Officer, or you can appeal a claim to the Board of Veteran Appeals. In some cases, an appeal may be filed with the Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims or qualify for Federal Circuit Court review.
