    Hi @Glanna and welcome to the community. :) 

    I can understand the confusion, but as you have applied again, it will only be from the date of the current claim, not the old one. 

     For future reference you can apply for a mandatory reconsideration if you don't agree with their decision for the current claim. There's some information on our site here that you might find useful. I hope that helps?
