Can I submit an appeal on a rating of "incompetency"?

 

A VA rating of incompetency is not eligible for appeal. A beneficiary may submit new medical evidence to the VA regional office of jurisdiction with a request to open a claim for competency.

The address to the VA regional of jurisdiction is located at: http://www2.va.gov/directory/guide/home.asp?isflash=1
