Hi does anyone know how to help i have been waiting 30 months for an assessment finally had it but now surely they'll have to backdate it because non of it is my fault first there was a backlog then I moved house ,informed them and appointment went to old address then a telephone assessment which took 1 hour and 20 minutes to be told they need face to face assessment, now the guidelines have changed so another hour long assessment on the telephone, I've heard they only backdate 3 months but all this time I've been told don't worry it will be backdated.
 but does anyone know for sure. 
Many thanks
