Backdated money after LCWRA tribunal?

Hope132 Community member Posts: 2 Listener
Hello, I first gave fit note in 3rd Jan 23, LCW was award 13th June and fit note ran out 29th June. Did mandatory reconsideration due to clearly having medical evidence of LCWRA eligibility, was denied and have gone to tribunal. I’m just wondering if I’m given LCWRA will it be back dated fully or not? 
Thank you

    It will be paid from the 4th month after you reported your health condition/sent your first fit note. That’s because there’s a full 3 month assessment period waiting time.
    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.
