    Hi 

    If you win at tribunal any higher award will be backdated to the time of application for the claim you are appealing against 

    Hope this makes sense

    hi thanks for that it's just they haven't had chance to look at my claim on the mobility part again since the court ruling came out and was wondering if I got it this time it might be backdated til then seeing as nothing has changed if you get what i mean

    The court ruling will be separate to tribunal.  Dwp will contact you if the court ruling affects you this us only certain claims between a certain period of time 

    The tribunal is only concerned with the claim you are appealing and any back dating as above will be to when you applied for the claim you are appealing
