antedate applicability length of delay
Summary:

The claimant filed an application for benefits approximately two years after his last day of work on July 12, 2006. He requested that his application be antedated to September 2006. He claimed that he was told, during two telephone conversations with a Commission agent that he did not qualify for benefits as he was not an immigrant. The FCA found that there was no explanation provided as to why the claimant delayed applying for benefits between the date when he stopped work in July 2006 and when he first contacted the Commission in October 2006. Application for judicial review allowed.
