Who is eligible for RAMP?

Appellants who have a disability compensation appeal pending in one of the following stages at the time of election are eligible for RAMP:
    - Notice of Disagreement (NOD) 
    - Form 9
    - Certified to Board (not activated) 
     - Remand
Compensation appeals certified to the Board and "activated" through formal placement on the docket are excluded and will remain pending in the current appeals process.
If you elect to participate in RAMP, VA will process all eligible appeals under the review lane you select.   
As of April 2, 2018, Veterans are no longer required to receive an invitation to participate in RAMP. VA will accept a RAMP Opt-in Election from any Veteran that meets the eligibility requirements noted above.
