In August President Trump signed the Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017, which makes major changes to the Veterans Affairs Appeals process. The act will not take effect until sometime in 2019 (either 540 days from the date of President Trump’s signature or upon submission of a required report from the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, whichever is last). The Act changes the character of the appeal process in an effort to speed up processing appeals. Find out the new system and the pitfalls and traps for the unwary.
