    Hi and welcome,

    Great news on the Support Group decision! As you were previously in the WRAG and this is a new decision after a work capability assessment then you will receive the extra money from the date of the decision. Unfortunately, you won't receive any backdated money from 2017. Hope this helps.
    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.
