I received the award letter for $1130 with effective date of Sept.1,2014 but no mention of retroactive payments back to informal claim date of May 16, 2014. will there be a separate letter for the retroactive payments going back to the informal claim date?? If so, how long before I get that letter? The formal claim was originally denied JUly 23, 2014 but I submitted form 21-8049 and 21-0518-1 and then it was awarded. If you get denied first and then have your claim reopened when you submit more forms (more info) are you not entitled to retroactive payments ??
