Back date payments after court tribunal.

Cb esa was stopped Feb 2017 and not recived any benifit from them. Asked for assessment in Feb 2017. Had this and was told I didn't have enough points so asked for mandatory reconsideration had this lost. Ask for court tribunal in September 2017 got this. Had court date last week appeal was allowed. What date do they return back pay to.

    Hi pigeon55
    @mikehughescq May have a better answer for you but your payments should be backdated to the date you submitted your present claim form.I assume from your post this was February 2017 however I would call them and check because I am not 100% certain how far back they can backdate.
    Good luck.

    Backdating is when you go back to a date earlier than the date of claim. What we’re talking here is arrears back to the date of claim and it does indeed sound as though they should go back only to February because it sounds like you only challenged the decision on the new claim and not the decision on the original award.
