    No, unfortunately you wont be. If successful it will be awarded from the date of the decision, which is always the case for reviews/renewals.

    Have you rang for a copy of the assessment report? this will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report. Although i really wish assessors wouldn't say this sort of thing to claimants because they're not supposed to. Good luck.
