Hi
I was wondering if you could help me please. I have been on universal credit for a long time. Just recently i had a medical assessment over phone to which they awarded me LCWRA to which my payment on top of universal credit starting this week. My query is would i be able to get backdated money, i have been handing fit notes in from 2019 until 3 weeks ago without any gaps. Would it get backdated to when i first handed a fit note in.
