    Are you talking about LCWRA? 
    LCWRA has a waiting period of 3 Assessment Periods after awarded for backpayment so the DWP are correct.

    Not correct based on OP’s dates. If LCWRA was awarded from 09/2021 then the LCWRA element would be payable from 01/2022 or 02/2022 rather than 05/2022.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    All you can do is raise a payment query through your journal and ask them to explain the payment.

    If this is UC and LCWRA then as bg844 has advised, there's a full 3 month assessment period waiting time and the extra money is paid from the 4th month after you reported your health condition.
    When it's paid from will depend on what date you reported your health condition and what date you usually receive your money each month.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    It's very difficult to read your comment when you use capital letters.
    When you said the judge dismissed your case do you mean you lost the Tribunal? If so after this when did you report your health condition for the exisiting Tribunal? The previous Tribunals won't count, if you were found fit for work or found to have LCW.
