Hi I won my appeal on Tuesday 23th October it says from july 2017 to july 2022   Shed so many tears with this struggle   Now praying DWP don't object   will it be three months backpay or from date I won appeal  I have no idea just relieved I won I got standard for both and although I think with my host of problems it should have been enhanced    I just now want to be able to pay for help after struggling at home after three surgeries I have two more surgeries to go through and knowing I can get help now is a relief thanks for reading   And don't give up x

    If this is a new PIP claim and not a conversion from DLA, you will be paid from the date when you originally lodged your PIP claim with the DWP.

    If it is a conversion it will be from 4 weeks after your last DLA payment.

    It will be from July 2017 as that is when you were awarded it from by the Tribunal.

    Is it? The Tribunal stand in the shoes of the DWP and will change the decision that they made which was wrong. So it will go back to when the claim was made even if that is a year or more before the Tribunal hearing.
