  2. 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.

If you are out of time to appeal a DRDRB decision, you can apply for an Application for Extension of Time.
