VA memo released regarding Regional Offices error

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) released a “fast letter” (memo) on January 6, 2010 titled, “Implementation of Board of Veterans’ Appeals Decisions.” The memo described inconsistencies within the VA regarding the payment of partial favorable findings.

According to the memo, some regional offices (ROs) were delaying implementation of the partial grants until the expiration of a 120-day period during which the veteran was entitled to appeal the decision. The memo states that such actions were in contravention with the VA’s “pro-veteran position” and created unnecessary delays in the payment of VA disability claims.

If you suspect that you may have been denied the opportunity to appeal a decision related to a partial favorable finding, you should contact an attorney.
