When will my benefits be effective if the claim is approved?

In general the effective date will be the date your claim was received by VA or the date entitlement arose, whichever is the later, however there are exceptions to this general rule.  To review the regulations governing effective dates please visit: www.benefits.va.gov/WARMS/docs/regs/38cfr/bookb/part3/s3_400.doc
