Hi my name is Dee, today was awarded a new percentage. As of Aug 2017 my service connected disabilities increased to 50%. I started another claim around Dec 2017 and today the percentage increased to 90%. When I logged into Ebenefits under disabilities it shows the effective date of my (70% new claim from Dec) is 8/10/2017. Now if I try to generate a letter from benefit summary tab, it shows the effective date of the last change to my current award as Dec 1, 2017. If I receive any retro which date should I be looking at? I’m very new to this and feel very lost, but is there a possibility I could file disability from SS?
