I have been receiving 70% benefits since I got out of the army 10/2008. Benefits started 11/1/2014. 40% back, 30 PTSD, Tinatius 10 I just requested a increase for back ... I went to the Dr. and my claim is already in Preparation for Notification.. And oh ya they backdated to 11/2013. What does that mean?

I think you must have gotten your increase for your neck. Have you filed for TDIU? Your claim for increase should be effective on the date you filed so if that is 11/2013 that makes sense. When you say "benefits start 11/01/14" that must mean your increase is to start on that month's day one. You should get retro to 11/2013 if I am understanding.

People filing their first ever VA claim can potentially get up to one years retro pay prior to the date they filed. I'm not sure if that is your situation or not though.

Did you have a different claim in the system prior to this one? If so it could be the date of that…
