okay long confusing story, have been waiting for a health assesment since april 2020 finally got one march 16th 2022 where i was deemed LCWRA.
previous to this i was on carers allowance to look after my mum briefly as she was very ill and dying on 20 Mar 2020 at 11:48am i reported no longer caring for her and handed on sick notes till last month but previous to the carers allowance my first ever claim was october 2018 where i was handing in sick notes til 20 th march 2020 where i was deemed lcw. apperently they are going from 2018 where i was deemed lcw so no backpayment is awarded . manage to spak to my case manager and she has put in for a mandatory re decision as i explained there was break in the original lcw and my health conditions had changed, diagnosed fybro and new meds for personality disorder. im so upset as was hoping for a new wet room out of backdated monies, can anyone help further in this confusion? thank you

    In March 2020 did you actually "report a change of circumstances" for your worsening of health condition? If you did then the extra money should be from when you reported your health condition.
    If the review was started by DWP then it will be from the date the decision was made.
    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.

    Then based on the information you gave the LCWRA element should be paid from the assessment period in which you reported the change.

    In your case, it won't be backdated because your wife already claims it for herself. All advised on your other thread here. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/89975/am-i-entitled-to-extra-lcwra-payments-if-my-wife-already-gets-them-and-we-claim-as-a-couple#latest
