Hi--we filed for benefits for our mom over a year ago and just have been told she has been approved and we should be getting official notice shortly. My question is about how far back benefits may be paid. We've been told the benefits will go back to the date of our original application, but I thought I had read the benefits would go back to the date she first entered assisted living, about six months before we were able to get the application materials in. Did I just mis-remember this? Thanks!
