​Starting this year, the VA will be unveiling its new RAMP system for more rapid processing of both legacy and appeals filed under its new process. By February of 2019, all requests for review of VA rating decisions will be processed under a new, multi-lane appeals process. In the interim, all legacy appeals – i.e. pre-2019, will be processed in a much more expedited manner.  The goal is to process supplemental claims in about 6-9 months and more complex claims in less than a year.  This would slash years off the current processing times for appeals.   An overview of the system is attached for your review and you may count on update blog entries as more practical tips become available for your use.
