    HI and welcome,

    Great news. It's most likely with a decision maker but it can take 8 weeks to receive backdated money owed and about the same time to put your award into future payment.

    They will contact you before they release any backdated money and ask you questions about any recent hospital stays, which is standard procedure. Hopefully you won't be waiting much longer.
    Proud winner of the 2019 empowering others award. This award was given for supporting disabled people and their families for the benefit advice I have given to members here on the community.
