Hi looking for some advice. Back in april 2022 i was supplied a fit note from my doctor and applied for the uc dissability assessment due to my health, anyway i was unsucsessful so i asked for it to be looked at again , outcome was the same so i took it to a tribunal and still declared fit for work. I kept supplying fit notes and started the whole process again and this time i have been awarded lwcra, will i get back dated from april 2022 as my fit notes have been supplied from then? Very confused about all of it.

    You will not be owed money from April 2022 because for that decision you were found fit for work by DWP and a Tribunal. 

    I’m very surprised that they continued to accept the fit notes after you were found fit for work. 

    There will also be a waiting period of 3 full assessment periods and the extra money will be paid from the 4th month. Very difficult to advise if your fit notes have been continuous. 
    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.
