PIP backpay

Hi,

I applied for pip in December and was given an assesment in February which i couldnt attend due to my illness so i requested a home assesment. After this i received a letter from the DWP saying my claim for pip was denied as I didn't attend an assesment in January (there was no assesment in January so i think they got it mixed up). I called and explained and eventually the DWP sent a ltter to say i had good reason not to attend the assesment and was referred back to Capita who made another appointment for me. I had my assesment today but i was wondering if I am awarded will i be back dated to December when i called or is this going to be classed as a new claim? It took 4 months to get a new assesment so would be missing out on quite a lot of money if that is the case
