Do I need to do anything if I have a claim or appeal pending with VA?

No action is needed on your part until you receive correspondence from VA which will identify anything needed on your part.  When processing your claim for benefits, VA will send a letter to you informing you if further information is needed and outlining the evidence needed to support your claim.  Upon receipt of an appeal, VA will send a letter acknowledging the receipt of your appeal and asking if you would like to follow the traditional appellate process or have a DRO review your case.
