B. Menu-Related Questions and Answers.

 

(1)     What happens if I want to stop for a while? You can stop what you are doing at any time by choosing the �Save/Exit� button.  The data entered up to that point will be saved for an appeal.

(2)     How do I save my information? Entries you made on the screen will be saved upon exit if you have clicked on the back or continue buttons after you made those entries.  Entries will also be saved, if you click the "Save/Exit" button within an Interview Section.

(3)   What will happen if I walk away or forget to exit? e-Appeal will automatically stop if you haven't saved an entry in 20 minutes; a 15 minute warning will appear on the screen.  A saved entry (by hitting back or continue button) resets the clock.

(4)     What are my options when I have finished? You will be given six options when you reach the end of e-appeal:

(a)     submit (click the "Validate Appeal" button to check your information to see if everything required is entered); after you fix any missing/required data, select the "Validate Appeal" button (available if you select Submit from the top menu). If everything is OK, you can choose to submit your appeal offline or online.  If you choose to submit your appeal offline, you must print the appeal and mail in the forms.  If you choose to submit online, you must select the office to which you would like to submit your appeal.  Following the screen prompts will send your application electronically to MSPB. After submission, print the application for your records.
