Unfortunately, due to a yet unknown error, Veterans, who filed Board Appeal Forms between February 19, 2019 and March 23, 2021, may have had their appeals mistakenly rejected as untimely. The VA is unaware of how many Veterans may have had their Board Appeal Forms mistakenly rejected and are therefore asking anyone who believes they may have been improperly rejected to send a letter to 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.

Veterans will need to include in their letter that they are asking the Board to Recalculate Timeliness and to make sure that they include their full name, claim number or SSN, the date of the rating decision appealed to the Board, and the date of the original VA Form 10182 that the Board rejected as untimely.
