Can I be paid retroactively to when I was discharged?

If your claim is received by VA within one year from your separation from service, your award will be retroactive to your separation date. Otherwise, VA can only pay benefits based on the date your claim was received.

For all current information about compensation and pension, eligibility, applications, etc., please go to http://www.vba.va.gov/VBA/  and click on the applicable links.
