    veteran what the percent of disability should be Percentage evaluation sought if known This is a trap Most veterans are not medical or legal experts and they do not understand the VA Rating Schedule Legally it doesn t matter what the veteran thinks the percentage should be What matters is what the evidence in the record supports The way to reduce the appeals backlog is to rate a veteran based on the evidence of record and not to shortchange or bargain with the veteran VVA recommends writing Max in block 15 c When this final rule goes into effect on March 24 2015 the NOD form will be mandatory If the VA receives an incomplete NOD form then the veteran will have 60 days or until the end of the 12 month NOD submission period to resubmit the form If the incomplete NOD is received with less than 60 days remaining in the 12 month NOD submission period then the VA will extend the deadline up to 60 days to allow the veteran a full 60 days to resubmit the form If the form is incomplete then the NOD deadline will be tolled up to 60 days to give the veteran extra time to resubmit the form However if the NOD is received in any format other than on this form such as a personal letter or a VA Form 21 4138 then the NOD won t count and the VA will not extend the NOD deadline VA officials say this is to incentivize the use of the form We feel this is a heavy handed departure from the non adversarial claims process intended by Congress It looks like an anti veteran attempt to reduce the appeals backlog by preventing future appeals If the VA is willing to grant one class of veterans an extra sixty days to redo an incomplete NOD form then it should not be overly burdensome to grant the same sixty day period to veterans who failed to use the NOD form provided their appeal was otherwise timely submitted The VA missed an opportunity to shave two months off the processing time for veterans appeals when the NOD form was developed Currently when a veteran submits an NOD the VA regional office must respond by mailing a De novo review election letter which asks the veteran if he or she wants the case reviewed by a decision review officer DRO If that option had been added to the NOD form election letters would have been unnecessary VVA strongly urges the VA to add the De novo election to the NOD form Although the title of the rule change is Standard Claims the VA is taking away the statutory right to file an informal claim by deleting the regulation that authorizes the VA to recognize medical evidence as informal claims As the change notes This rulemaking also eliminates the constructive receipt of VA reports of hospitalization or examination and other medical records as informal claims for increase
