VA Appeals Modernization, Explained (2019) - YouTube

The Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017 began as a collaborative effort involving VA, Veterans Service Organizations, Congressional Staff, and other stakeholders.  It quickly gained bipartisan support and was signed into law on August 23, 2017.  The Appeals Modernization Act (AMA) restructured the entire VA disability appeals process in an effort to simplify and streamline the old appeals system, known as the Legacy system.  AMA’s intent was to provide veterans, their families, and their survivors increased choice in handling disagreements with VA’s decisions.  The new, multi-lane system was fully implemented on February 19, 2019.  All requests for review of VA decisions that were issued on or after that date will be processed under AMA.
