Earlier Effective Date

This is the date in which the awarded benefit(s) is/are effective.

A common use is of an EED indicates when any retroactive payments will take effect. Let's say you submit a claim for benefits and it takes the VA six months to award. Your EED would be when you filed your claim, not necessarily when they awarded them. If the VA owed you any retroactive backpay, they would have to pay back to the EED. There are a lot of other factors involved for different situations and types of claims. This is just a simple example.
