So recently I posted about weather I might receive IIDB and thank you everyone for your replies. I’ve been awarded 20% disabled. They’ve backdated it to 3 months. The accident happened at work 2 years today, why they asked me for the date is beyond me. Is it my fault covid happened and that I didn’t know about IIDB till I printed off my self cert? I waited 2 years for my operation, anyone got any advice on whether I should challenge it?

    It's not unusual to recieve money in your bank before the decision letter.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
