    As the others have said, waiting times can vary and there can be a backlog, but please do keep us updated: fingers crossed things will move forwards soon!

    I phoned up the same as you did on Monday and told my decision, the lady then told me I would be awarded it from march and told me the amount it was fairly large,, then I had a call to my mobile from the dwp it was the same lady she told me the decision marker had got the sum of money wrong and said that she was awarding me more she looked into my case after are phone call I might not of ever got that extra money if she didn't look into it,,, sorry I can't be of more help but thats what happened, in my case so they do pay backdated money as they did with me,, maybe ring them again and ask for a explanation it can't hurt,, I find some call handlers really good and some useless it's really luck of the draw,, I find the Irish office super helpful I don't know if anyone else agrees with that
