Hi I am new to this ...this is my question I would be grateful for some advise.
I was receiving ESA and have been diagnosed with PTSD with anxiety and depression so decided to apply for PIP. I was unsuccessful so done mandatory part and refused again so decided to go to appeal. 1 week later I got a call from PIP to say they had decided to award me enhanced rate so I was so relieved I wouldnt need to go to court. Will I receive arrears from July 2019 when I first applied? Thank you

    I think they do backdate it though someone with more knowledge than me will have better info. Well done on winning the tribunal - it's not an easy think to have to go through x

    @mollydolly did they say why they accepted it even though they said no from the start? that’s great news you won! I’ve got my review soon so hopefully it all goes to plan. was this for a review or a new claim to pip?

    It was a new claim. And they just said they had looked at it again ...to be honest I couldnt concentrate because I was in shock I think. It's a terrible stress. I'm so relieved. I hope all goes well for you too xx
