    Hi 

    The length of assessments vary and as it was a 2nd one they probably only needed additional info

    Hi again  

    Dec to Jan,  Jan to Feb and Feb to Mar would be waiting period so first payment would  be April 

    So depending on when you get a decision  you should get arrears payment for the months April onwards

    They try and take outstanding money and it would help you to get it paid and give you more money each month 

    If you have a payment plan already in place you could try and dispute paying it out of your arrears 

    You need to wait for a decision first before any of this applies

    I don’t think a budgeting advance will be taken back from any arrears.
