Receiving backpay

oakridge Member Posts: 9 Listener
Hope you're all good.
Going by my phone records, I called pip and requested an application 5/11/19. I had my assessment 25/2/20 and received a text stating they had received my report 27/2/20. 
Going by the report I've managed to score 8 points for daily living, so it looks like I'm getting standard if the decision maker agrees. 
After mooching through here it seems I should be backdated to the November date, however after speaking to someone that's recently been through it all, they've started that they didn't receive back pay to the point of first contact. Just wondering which it is, or is it a case of depends where you live or some other crazy reason. Only reason I ask is I've worked it out to be a backpayment of xxx which, will greatly help in me gaining some mobility in the form of a second hand car.
Thanks for bearing with me and your help.
