Mark Cheney with Chapter 120 explained to WBFO the most common examples of cases facing appeals.

"Primarily, it's a claim that did not have sufficient, original documentation submitted after the first initial consult," he said. "That is where the appeal process comes into play."

Cheney says those interested in assistance Monday must bring their DD214 (certificates of release or discharge), a legal form of identification and any documents needed to assist in the case.
