    In the award letter it will tell you what dates your backdated money is paid from and to. You count 4 weeks from the date it's paid up until. For example, if you applied on 30th November and the money is paid up until 22nd April.. you could 4 weeks from 22nd April.
    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.
