    HI and welcome.

    Great news on the Tribunal win. Although i'm not really sure exactly what your question is. Are you asking how long it takes to receive back dated money?
    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.

    No problem. It can take anything from 2-8 weeks. Sometimes sooner.
