NOTE: To ensure that payments begin no earlier than the start of the Stieberger PAYMENT PERIOD, in DWB and CDB claims it is usually necessary for the FO to establish
an artificial date disability onset date (OS) to limit retroactivity.
If the actual OS would result in payments starting before the PAYMENT PERIOD, the
FO will select a OS that will limit retroactivity to the start of the PAYMENT PERIOD.
In doing this the FO will keep in mind that:
CDB applications based on a disabled worker's entitlement have a maximum retroactivity
of 12 months. CDB applications based on retired or deceased worker's accounts have a maximum retroactivity of 6 months.
DWB applications have a maximum retroactivity of 6 months.
