SDP

Hello, I am just wondering how it takes currently for SDP to be backdated when it is meant to be given? I had the form sent for me stating I was entitled by the DWP to my local centre about four days ago. 

Thank You.

    HI,

    When applying by post it can take 4-5 weeks, under normal circumstances.  When applying by phone it takes about 1 week.
    Once a decision's been made you'll recieve a letter.
