The VA would then give all the veterans with this condition VA Disability Back Pay to make up for the extra 10% the law says they should have been receiving for this condition since 2009.
The Rating Authorities use the laws of the VASRD to decide these ratings.When the VASRD changes, these ratings, and thus the amount of VA Disability the veteran should receive, also change.This is within the 1-year mark, so his date of eligibility for VA Disability Back Pay is his date of separation.It takes another 9 months before the VA’s Rating Decision is reached.A veteran’s date of eligibility for VA Disability Back Pay is determined in one of two ways.
First, if the veteran submits his VA Disability Claim within one year of his date of separation, his date of eligibility for VA Disability Back Pay is his date of separation.
Second, if the veteran submits his VA Disability Claim after this 1-year period, then his date of eligibility for VA Disability Back Pay is the first day of the month after the VA receives his claim.
It’s important to get your VA Disability Claim submitted as soon after discharge from the military as possible.
