Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions
Which state is this in?
I'm sorry to say that California does not allow for benefits to be collected for any period prior to when your claim is filed. In other words, you cannot receive retroactive benefits in California in the scenario that you suggest where you simply did not file a claim.
I am truly sorry for the bad news, but please understand that it would be unfair to you (and unprofessional of me) to provide you with anything less than an honest response. However, if your concerns were not satisfactorily addressed, then please let me know and I will be happy to clarify my answer.
Also, despite the bad news, I would certainly appreciate it if you remember to provide a positive rating via the stars, as it is the only way that I'll get credit for answering your question(s). Thank you. :)
Hello again. I didn't hear back from you, and you haven't yet rated me, so I'm just checking in to make sure that you don't need more help on this issue.
