Back pay

Hi my name is Karen. I have been awarded higher rate of PIP. They received my completed form 18th July. I was awarded 13 December. Should I receive back payment?

    If you're transferring from DLA there's no back dated money, same if it's a review. If it's a new claim or change of circumstances then it's backdated to the date you rang to start your claim.

    It was a review. Started on PIP 3 years ago. So no backdated money?
