Documents required to submit an appeal
To file an appeal, you need to submit two documents. Both documents are required.
The DRDRB decision.
A completed Notice of Appeal form OR a detailed letter with the same information on the Notice of Appeal form.
If you have a representative acting on your behalf, you also must submit a Notice of Representation form.
The DRDRB decision is the first document that is required to file an appeal.
This is an example of what a DRDRB decision looks like.
