Ok so I seperated from the Navy in 2006 in which I made a claim for several different diagnosis. I absolutey forgot about my claim and never checked on it. Last year, I decided to put in a claim for a scar that has been giving me problems. When the VA finally contacted me they stated that I had a claim back in 2006 and it was never worked on. I believe they canceled it or never followed through. The guy reopened my case and added my new claim to it. Well it's been a year and of course they are still working on my claim. What I am wondering is if I am awarded disability for the any of the claims I made back in 2006, will I recieve retroactive pay. I am concerened since on my ebenfits account it shows that all my claims are new when only one of them should be new and the rest old claims that NEVER were followed up on. If I do not get retroactive pay for the items I claimed in 2006 and if I am awareded any disability how do I get retroactive pay?
