    Did you transfer from DLA?

    If not, did  you have the difficulties for at least 3 months when you first applied? 
    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.

    First of all, congrats on your award! B) Backpay can often take some time to be processed @kelsey07, often around 4 weeks. How long has it been since you put in your application?
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
