I appealed against my decision which I got Lwc, I appealed it and got a decision back saying I’ve been put onto lwcra, my claim started in 20.06.19, first sick note was 20.08.19 will my backdated payments be from 20.11.19 and when will I be receiving them if anybody has a ruff idea, I finally got my medical assessment on 30.12.20 then got Lwc but appealed and got my decision back 20.04.21, my lwcra element payment was put onto my universal credit 21.04.21, 

if anybody could help me when should I be receiving my backdated payments? 

Thanks in advance Kenny

    It takes a while for backdated money to be paid but its a good sign you have had your first payment 

    Keep checking your statements as once the old ones change to show the additional payments they have applied the back pay and then you should get it
