    There's a full 3 month waiting period and the extra money is paid from the 4th month of your claim. The extra money is not paid at all during the waiting period.
    Based on when you reported your health condition then there is no backdated money owed. Your waiting period is Nov/Dec, Dec/Jan, Jan/Feb. The first payment is March, which is correct.
    You were assessed very quickly. A lot of people have to wait several months and more.
    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.

    May have been automatic entitlement due to specific health condition.
