How To Request A Personal Hearing for Veterans’ Appeals
You have the right to request a personal hearing for Veterans’ Appeals.
What is a personal hearing?
A personal hearing is a meeting between you, your representative if you have one, and the person from the VA who will decide your case.
There are two types of personal hearings:
- A hearing with someone from your local VA office
- A hearing with a member of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals
How to get a hearing
You can request a personal hearing with a local VA official at any time by sending a written request to your local VA office.
Or you can request a hearing with a member of the Board of Veterans’ Appeals when you fill out your VA Form 9. If you want a personal hearing with a member of the Board, you can choose from several different types:
- A hearing in Washington, D.C., where the Board of Veterans’ Appeals is located.
- A videoconference hearing at your local VA office between you and the Board Member in Washington, D.C. This is usually the quickest way to get a hearing with a Board Member.
- A hearing at your local VA office with the Appeal’s Board Member present.
