Artie Simm,
After you call the BPA, they will generate a file and assign a lawyer/legal assistant to gather up the information related to your application. If they decide you have a chance at winning an appeal then the BPA will setup a departmental review or bring your matter before the VRAB. At this point, the BPA will send you a copy of all the information you had submitted with your application along with a document from VAC outlining the rationale for their decision.

I suggest calling the BPA back to see if they can review your decision to determine what they suggest as a possible course of action. Once you have suggestions from BPA then you are in better position to make a decision.

I suggest for you to give them a call and request a review of your decision.

Has anyone had any dealings with this organization?
in the letter I recieved it states "...If you have concerns with the decision you recieved you may request the legal services of BPA, if you have new eveidence after recieving a decision with which you are dissatisfied, it is possible to have your claim reviewed by VAC through a written submission called a Departmental Review....
Does anyone know if this Departmental Review can be submitted through MyVACaccount, or does it have to be done in hand writing and then snail mailed somewhere?
