    To receive backdated money from the date you were found fit for work then you will need that sick note to be backdated. If it's not backdated then you'll lose that money and you'll only receive money from the date of the sick note.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    For ESA i'm afraid that won't work. A sick/fit note is always needed to be able to claim it.

    Complain and ask to see another doctor, they can backdate when they feel like it.
