Substantive Appeal

Substantive Appeal

After receiving a Statement of the Case, the appellant must file a Substantive Appeal to continue the appellate process. In the Substantive Appeal, the appellant has the opportunity to present specific arguments relating to errors of fact or law in the decision of the regional office. The Substantive Appeal may consist of an adequately executed VA Form 9, Appeal to Board of Veterans Appeals, or correspondence containing the necessary information. This is the final action the appellant must take to perfect the appeal.
