Can I appeal to a court?

If the BVA does not grant all the benefits you are seeking, you have four choices: 

  • Decide not to pursue your claim 
  • Appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims
  • Ask the BVA to reconsider its decision or
  • Reopen your case with new and material evidence.
