I have multiple appeals with multipale issues.  Do I have to choose the dame lane for all of them?
Yes.  Under RAMP, you must choose either the Higher Level Review lane or the Supplemental Claim lane for all eligible compensation issues under appeal.  However, if you remain dissatisfied with the decision you receive in one of these lanes, you will have a year to use the other lane or appeal to the Board of Veterans' Appeals, and your potential effective date for your benefits will always be protected.
