    Hello @laura16 and a warm welcome to the community.

    Yes, if your son's DLA is reinstated, the disabled child element should be backdated too. If he is awarded be sure to report the change to UC, and use the date that the DLA was backdated to as the date of change.

    If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask. 🙂
