I triggered a PIP review. Would arrears be paid from the date I reported change or date of decision?

Hi everyone just after a bit of advice I triggered a pip review back in October 2021 I was on standard rate care finally had assessment June 15th received pa4 and health assessment seems to recommend high care and mobility with review in a year. My question is if dwp go with assessment will they back date the difference in payment to when I notified them of worsening conditions or from when they finally make a decision thank you for taking the time to answer

    Hi there 

    The higher award eg difference to your current award will be backdated to when you reported the change

    Hi @dave392

    As @janer1967 describes, if the decision maker goes with the healthcare professionals recommendations then arrears will be paid from the date PIP were first notified of your worsening condition.

    Just to let you know, I've tweaked the title of your thread to help others see what your question is.  Please let us know how you get on and good luck :)
