    HI and welcome,

    Backdated money is usually paid separately to your usual monthly payment. This is because they have to calculate how much they owe you first. Once it's calculated it will be uploaded onto your journal. How much backdated money they owe you will depend on when your assessment period dates are and when you first sent your first fit note because it's 3 full assessment periods of waiting time.
