LCWRA Backpay

Just thought I would share my experience with you all in case anyone is going through same process.
I win my tribunal on 13th Feb for LCWRA and had my first payment in my March IS payment . However I had not heard anything about back pay no award letter and nothing in my journal .
I rang DWP today to chase up and they were very helpful I'm so glad I rang as they said they would process the back pay immediately. Also I enquired the amount and was surprised it was over £1300 less than I was expecting from my calculation after advise from people on here . They looked through the calculation and found the error and recalculated and my calculation was correct . So just bit advice to calculate yourself what you estimate and query if you don't agree. 
They had done calculation correct but had deducted some as they thought I had been overpaid some elements of UC which they said was a system error
