Retro Pay ... De Novo Appeal Question



I am a 20 year retired Vet (Army). I am writing this because I trying to understand how far back retro pay on a De Novo review goes. I am trying to understand and get my head right on how this works. I am hoping someone will read this and possibly explain to me what I do not understand.

My original rating (Retired on 1 November 2010, filed VA Claim and rated on June 1 2011) was 50% I filed an appeal (May 2012 as a NOD De Novo). After 4 years I just received my SoC and I have been granted a 90% rating. My question is and what I am confused on is will my retro pay go back to my original claim date (1 November 2010) since that is when I filed my original claim or will my retro pay only go back to when i filed my NOD/De Novo Appeal (May 2012)? I am confused on this and would love if someone can answer this question? I really hope to hear from anyone and I appreciate your input in Advance.

TisonC, it goes back to the original claim date as long as you didn't miss any deadline dates, like filing a timely NOD.  One year to file from date they denied the claim.

Well I received notice of my original rating on 6-10-2011 and they received my NOD on 6-7-2012 per the datelines in the SoC, so guess that means they owe me retro pay at the difference between 50% and 90% for close to 65 Months!??

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
