    Hi @paulakath

    Hmmm, a bit of a tricky one!

    Normally, the position would be that the award would just apply to the date of the new claim, and if this was made on the basis of 'change of circumstances' (although I appreciate that in reality your circumstances may not have changed that much, if at all) then I think this will very likely be the case, as if you have indicated that your circumstances have changed this would be legitimate grounds for supersession in any even.

    However there are other factors at play here, and if you did not indicate with your new claim that your circumstances had changed, then I think alot might depend on what the Tribunal have indicated in the Decision. Have a read of it, there is usually an indication of when the award is intended to begin and how long it is intended to run for. If it is indicated that this is longer than the period to when your new claim began, I'd say there is an argument that your claim should be fully backdated with mobility and added to the present award.

    Apologies if this is slightly unclear, if you would like us to be a bit more specific, please reply with (a) whether the new claim indicated that your circumstances had changed and (b) the exact wording of the Tribunal decision.

    Hope this helps!

    Kind regards,

    Mary
