Retroactive Benefits from VA

Retroactive benefits are often owed to Veterans or their surviving dependents if a claim is granted. The retroactive benefit is the accrued award from the date of the claim submission (effective date) to the date of the enactment (Rating Decision). VA will utilize the effective date to establish the retroactive payment amount. Bergmann & Moore created a calculator for Veterans to estimate their potential retroactive payment here.

As a general guideline, the effective date is usually the date a claim was filed. However, you may be entitled to an effective date earlier than the one assigned by VA if you previously filed a claim for the same disability.

Bergmann & Moore has been successful in winning earlier effective dates for Veterans and their surviving dependents. If you’ve received an unfavorable decision from VA, Bergmann & Moore may be able to help.
