Re: Procedure to upgrade my disability claim

These findings are considered "new and material evidence". Therefore, under current VA regulation, your case may be reopened. Contact one of the service organizations such as PVA or DAV to assist you with refiling of your claim. All of the major cities in Ohio such as Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati have branch office to assist veterans.

Good luck!
