 I first claimed uc in May 2016 which i also had a sick note as i have asthma/copd (acos).  I have provided sick notes right up till dwp told me i didnt need to issue them no more which was in December 2019 as i was awarded LCWRA. They backdated my payment to june 2019 which was when they sent me the forms for a health assessment. I had waited over 3 years for a assessment when ive read in gov.co.uk that i shouldve had an assessment when i first claimed as i provided a sick note. Should my backdated payment go back to may 2016?
Ive also now been awarded the enhanced mobility rate and standard living rate for pip
