Backdating a check
This type of backdating is done to memorialize an earlier event.For example, imagine a board of directors meeting with their lawyer, at which they agree to take certain actions.When VA makes a determination that a compensation award is to be paid based on a claim, an effective date is also assigned.The effective date determines when benefits are payable.
No law requires you to accept them, and careful landlords refuse to do so.
Effective dates can vary based on the type of benefit and the circumstances of the claim.
Listed below are the most common types of claims and generally how effective dates are assigned for each type.
There is an exception in cases where the claim is filed within one year of separation from active military service.
For these claims, the effective date will be the day following separation.
