    Hi @john49
    Can you give them a ring and ask to clarify?

    Hi,

    Looking at those dates i'm assuming you're talking about the Incapacity benefit to ESA under payments yes? If so then being entitled to any back dated money will depend on circumstances such as household income, savings/capital, private pensions etc. All you can do is wait for the letter to arrive and see what it says.

    Most likely you will yes but only DWP can answer that question. You'll need to ring them and ask.
