New and Material Evidence

New and Material Evidence

Evidence not previously submitted to agency decision makers, which requires the VA to reopen a claim that has been finally denied in the past and decide it anew based on both the old and the new evidence. To be new and material, the evidence must, among other things, bear directly and substantially upon the specific matter under consideration, and be neither cumulative nor redundant.
