    Hi,

    You'll need to wait for DWP to assess you and made a decision unfortunately because it's impossible to give you a definite answer on an internet forum. It can take 12-20 weeks for DWP to make a decision, once they have they will write to you.

    Lots of people have received backdated money from between various years. Lots of people haven't been owed anything. It really depends on your circumstances and which group you were in at that time.
