How to appeal

You should appeal within one year of getting your decision letter.

Before you appeal

Write a letter to Veterans UK and ask them to reconsider their decision. Explain why you think the decision is wrong and give any information not included in your original claim.

They will look at your case again and write to you with their decision.
