Hi everyone. I'm new to all this so if i make mistakes pls excuse me.
I've been on standard daily living for a while but put in for the mobility component (as i have a soft tissue disorder)originally asking for the change if circumstances form April 11th 18. I had an at home accessment on the 24th july. It went to the decision makers on the 13th if August. A couple of weeks ago I received my accessment report which gave me 16points for mobility (more than I need). Do you know how long the decision makers normally take to make a decision and will it get back dated from when I originally asked for the c.o.c form pls?
Thanks
