In November 2017, VA launched the Rapid Appeals Modernization Program (RAMP). RAMP provides a unique opportunity for Veterans with a pending disability compensation appeal to have early access to the more efficient review process outlined in the historic Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017 before the law takes effect in February 2019. Previously, a Veteran with a pending appeal could only opt in to RAMP after receiving an invitation from VA. As of April 2, Veterans no longer need an invitation to participate in RAMP. Now, all Veterans with a pending disability compensation appeal can choose to participate in the new decision review process.
