Rapid Appeals Modernization Program (RAMP) Will opt-in letters continue to be mailed and how frequently?

Will opt-in letters continue to be mailed and how frequently?

VA is conducting RAMP by phases.  Phase 1 began in November 2017 with an initial mailing to 500Veterans with the oldest compensation appeals.  Subsequent and increased mailings of 5,000 and 10,000 notices occurred in December 2017 and January 2018, respectively.  Mailings, follow-up mailings, and gov delivery email blasts will be conducted in regular intervals thereafter only to those Veterans who have already received RAMP opt-in letters.

Effective April 2, 2018, VA is expanding RAMP by removing the requirement that Veterans first receive an invitation from VA in order to elect participation in the program.
