    That's a ridiculous wait for the assessment (all pre Covid too).

    Backdating should apply from around April 2018. Exact date depends on exactly when you reported the health condition and what dates each monthly UC payment covers.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.
