    Assuming this is a first time claim and you weren’t transferring from DLA then your award will start from the date you rang to start your claim, so you will be owed money from that date. Providing you had the conditions for at least 3 months when you first applied. 
    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.
