Hi, I'm westcoast! Is backpayment from date of decision, or when health assessment was sent in?

Hi, I have waited 15 months for my health assessment, which I finally got last month.
I am fairly certain I will be placed in the LWRAG.
I am still awaiting a decision.
However I messaged on my UC journal today, asking if there was any update, the message I received was not what I was expecting.
They told me there was NO time scale for a decision to be made, and that if I hadn't heard anything within 4 months they would escalate it.
Also they said if there was any money owed to me it would be paid from the date of the decision.
As far as I was aware it would be back dated -3 month from when my health assessment was sent in.
Can you please clarify this.
Many thanks
