What If My Veterans Disability Claim is Denied?

The very first thing you should do if your Veterans Disability claim is denied is contact the VA immediately and tell them you disagree. What you want to do is to put that in writing, and the veterans administration calls that a notice of disagreement or an “N.O.D.” And it doesn’t have to be anything fancy; basically it can be just a short note or a letter saying that you disagree with the decision that they’ve made, and that you want to appeal.

That last part is magic language — you have to say “Want To Appeal” — but it’s not a complicated process.
