Employment and support allowance back dated pay

Hello newbie here so hope I've posted this ok.

I got a call today to confirm my mandatory reconsideration was successful. I have been on the assessment rate the last 10 months and after my f2f I was placed in the work related group now I'm in the support group. Just wondering if I will get backdated pay for the the whole time of being on assessment rate or will it just be to cover from when I contested the decision? Thank u

    Great news. You'll be backdated the extra money from the 14th week of your claim.
