The VA just rolled out a new pilot program called the Claim Accuracy Request Process which is a pilot program that was rolled out last week. This new change will have a major impact on your claim for veterans benefits.
The Veterans Benefits Administration will allow accredited representatives an opportunity to request an expeditions review and determination of a VA claim for veterans benefits in accordance with the appeals modernization act.
This pilot program is currently only open to VA accredited representatives, agents, and attorneys.
VBA will review decisions in which the representative alleges an obvious error in fact or law, and requests review within 30-calendar days of VA’s notification letter.
The CAR must be submitted on VA Form 20-0996, Decision Review Request: Higher-Level Review, with the phrase “Claim Accuracy Request” or “CAR” prominently noted in the top margin of the third page of the application. A CAR is an expedited higher-level review (HLR). If the claim is submitted outside of the 30-calendar day time limit, it will be processed under normal HLR procedures.
