LCWRA - why did it take so long

casra Community member Posts: 4 Connected

I am new to posting in here, so apologies in advance for any inadvertent mistakes.

I had a horrible accident 4 years ago which has left me in a wheelchair and multiple surgeries. I began my journey on ESA contribution style and moved into UC after a year.  I have supplied sick notes for 3 years continuously until the DWP asked me to stop them in January 2023.  I just recently won at tribunal to move from LCW to LCWRA.  Just a side note, I have been in receipt of full rate Mobility PIP for 3 years.   

So, my question is..How is it decided how far back to go for arrears?  Is it the judge or the DWP?   

I go my letter confirming that I won my case a few days ago but does not have any other information in it.

Thanks for reading my post and many thanks for any insights.
