Onset versus Disability Rating date

Question:

I was rated for PTSD in 2013 and now just got my sleep apnea secondary to PTSD . My question is does the effective date of my new rating go back to 2013?  Both are service connected. My PTSD effective date is 09/2013 and the sleep apnea is 05/2020.

The effective date of a claim is the date you file it. The onset of the rated condition doesn't come into play.
