They pay retro usually back to the claim filling date. You can't file for something And claim it back 10 yrs ago, for example, except in a few rare cases of presumptive claims, or if you are recently discharged you have 1 year. https://cck-law.com/veterans-law/are-there-retroactive-awards-for-veterans-disability-claims/

We would have to go over your file and review it, to see if its likely you qualify for an EED (earlier effective date).  Was the decision which granted the 70 percent (at the wrong effective date) within the past year?  If so, appeal the decision's effective date by filing a nod.  

There are multiple ways of qualifying for an eed.  38 cfr 3.156 c or b can mean an eed if you can submit new relevant evidence.  

Also possible is cue error.  

There are other ways also, but we need to know more, Im not listing "all" of them.  

You can take your file to a law firm who represents Vets and ask them if you qualify.  One example is cck law, a reputable vets law firm.  They will review your file, and let you know if they see an eed.  You can then decide whether to hire them or not.

Morenter -Are you the veteran or are you asking for a veteran?

The advice above is solid- retro is decided in the award letter.

And there are ways to fix it ,if it is the wrong EED.And best to do that sooner than later-
