PIP - Back Payments

Kev_G Member Posts: 8 Connected
Dear all,

Does anyone know if there are written rules regarding back payments?

In my case, I had standard rate and following lots of fractures I notified DWP, completed a new 'How your disability affects you form', went through another assessment and the rate was changed to enhanced rate.  The change was not backdated. Does anyone know the actual rule?

TIA Kev.
