Rapid Appeals Modernization Program (RAMP). Will RAMP be faster than the current process?

Will RAMP be faster than the current process?

We anticipate RAMP processing times will be significantly faster than current appeal processing times.  VA's goal is to process reviews under RAMP in an average of 125 days.  Currently, Veterans are waiting an average of three years for a resolution of their appeal.  For those appeals that are decided by the Board, on average, Veterans are waiting an average of six years from filing of their Notice of Disagreement (NOD) until the Board issued a decision.
