    Leave a message under the 'payments' category. They might not but it's worth the ask as they do usually. Remember to be polite, I have wrote something for you to copy below (remember to change the dates).


    As you are aware from me doing a change of circumstances, my child was awarded Disability Living Allowance from 00 June 2022. I unfortunately was not aware that I could of been eligible for any further top-up from Universal Credit so I would be grateful if you could please request that this is backdated.

    Kind Regards,
