FABRICANT, J. The employee and the self-insurer cross-appeal from a decision in which an administrative judge awarded the employee § 34A permanent and total incapacity benefits for a 1996 neck injury. The employee contends that these benefits should commence on January 10, 2003, when her doctor opined she was permanently and totally disabled, and not on August 28, 2003, the date of the § 11A impartial examination and used by the judge. The self-insurer disagrees and further argues that the employee did not prove any benefit entitlement at all. We affirm the decision.
