Rapid Appeals Modernization Program (RAMP) What lane should I select if I have new evidence to submit?

What lane should I select if I have new evidence to submit?
You should select the supplemental claim lane.  In this lane you can submit or identify additional evidence and VA has a duty to assist you in gathering evidence to support your claim.  If you elect to first have a Higher-Level Review, VA cannot accept or consider any evidence that you submit after you request a Higher-Level Review.  However, if you remain dissatisfied with VA's Higher-Level Review decision, you will have a full year to use the Supplemental Claim lane or appeal to the Board of Veterans' Appeals. You should consult your representative, if you have one, for assistance with selecting the lane that best meets your needs.
