So here is the deal. I filed a claim on July 2013. Received my denial June 2014 and immediately started the appeal process. Received a letter today Sept. 29th stating i was granted the tinnitus on May 2017 and that i will be back paid from July 2013. I called to see about when i would receive my pay and was told I would not receive anything until my 3 other claims are finished with there appeal process (i have to do a medical video board). In the letter is state condition will be removed from the appeal process. Does that make sense?
