    Hello @foxxxiz. I believe this is correct and it's from date of decision, but I'll double check tomorrow with our benefit adviser and get back to you ASAP.

    Hi,

    I agree with Adrian here, it’s from the date of the decision.

    I was told if standard review from fate of decision but if review was because of change in health it should of been backdated to when they was notified. It's all so confusing

    Hi @foxxxiz I spoke with our benefit adviser and they've said that isn't straightforward. If it were PIP and your condition had deteriorated this would be classed as a supersession and could then be argued for backdating to the date a change was notified. For UC we think it's possible that replacing one decision with another one might possibly be regarded as a supersession.
    So if it's classed as a supersession you could argue for backdating, if it's not then you can't. It's worth a try saying you believe it to be a supersession.
