    Hi Sarah and welcome

    Yes you will get back pay from the start
    If it was a new claim from when you claimed
    if it was a review or a change from DLA, to when your claim stopped

    It usually takes 5-8 weeks for DWP to put a tribunal award into payment.
    Large amounts generally need to be checked and signed off by a senior DM/manager
