    I submitted a disability claim back in February and I am wondering about the effective date for my back pay. I know typically the effective date is the day you submit your claim unless you submit it within a year of discharge from then your claim is back dated to your date of separation from active duty.

    My question is if the VA will back date to my date of separation if I submitted my claim 6 days after my 1 year mark? I EASed February 14, 2016 and submitted my claim February 20, 2017.
