Backdated SDP

Hi, I was recently awarded sdp but was only backdated 3 weeks to the date of my application. I wrote a letter requesting that they look at the start date again as I know now through reading on here that I'm entitled to it backdated to Nov 2020. I've been waiting for just over a month now for a reply but nothing as yet. I have the receipt for sending the letter and have a screenshot of the signature time and date of when it was received. I also made a copy of the letter. My question is does anyone know how long I should be waiting for a response? I can't phone them as my anxiety just takes over so I'll write another letter if need be. 
Thank you 🤔

    Unfortunatetly, there's not really any timescales. Do you have someone who can ring on your behalf because you'll have a much quicker response by doing this rather than sending a letter.
    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.
