The Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017 (AMA) gives Veterans choice over how VA reviews their disagreement with a claim decision. It also makes sure Veterans receive faster, clearer decisions. There are several important things Veterans should know about AMA including:
- AMA provides Veterans choice and control when they disagree with a VA claim decision.
- Veterans keep their effective date under the new appeals process.
- Veterans can check the status of their appeal with a VA appeals status tracker.
- Resources are available to inform Veterans about AMA.
