BVA Video Hearing

What is a BVA Video hearing?

If you are considering a Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA) hearing, you may want to consider a video hearing.

A Video Hearing is one of the three types of hearings the Board of Veterans’ Appeals offers. They are similar to in-person hearings with the Veterans Law Judge. But the difference is that you will speak to one another from different locations with up-to-date video conferencing.

The Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA) Video Hearings use high tech audio and visual equipment that will allow you and the Judge to see and hear each other. So you will feel like you are talking face to face.

How Does a Video Hearing Work?

Your regional VA office contacts you to schedule your appearance and inform you of the date, time, and place of your hearing. You then report to your hearing with a representative and/or witnesses. At this time The BVA allows you to submit additional evidence at the hearing. The VA Regional facility hosting your hearing will use state-of-the-art equipment to connect a video and audio feed to a Board Veterans Law Judge in Washington, DC.

Advantages of a Video Hearing

There are a number of advantages to choosing a Video Hearing, as opposed to an in-person hearing.
