Hi, I am curious and thought I would ask here. I was trying to find out what my effective date is. I reached out to the DAV to find out if they would be going back to 2011 since my initial C&P exam. Here below was there response:
10/20/11, you filed a claim
1/17/12, the VA said you failed to report to exams (FTR)
4/2/12, the VA deferred decisions on your back and GERD
3/11/13, the VA denied the claims because they said you failed to report to exams in 2012
12/31/13, you filed for your back and GERD again
11/27/15, the VA denied the claim
THIS IS WHERE IT DROPS
7/14/17 you re-filed and attended exams, that is the date of service connection. If you wouldn’t have had over a year in between these then they could’ve gone back, but as you can see by the screen shot included, there was no activity between 2015 and 2017.
Does this make sense the fact that I missed just single one year in 2016 of continuous reapplying that I can’t go back to 2011?? I’ve tried to look all over the place to find something in the VA to support this but haven’t found anything.
