Hi.. I have just been awarded lcwra.
I wanted to know how the back date works out..
I went on uc in May 2019 due to been health issues I have given sick note none stop since then.
In November 2021 I filled in the work capability form. 
They granted me it this week. 
They have said I'll get back pay of £2400.
Someone said that is wrong and it should go from 4month after my first sick note was handed in. Could u help me here.
Thank you

    You're correct it should be backdated to 3 full assessment periods after you first put in your fit note. Does it say on your letter what date they are backdating until?

    I'd query why they're only backdated to Nov 2021 then as it sounds like it should be from May 2019 the 3 assessment period wait starts. It doesn't sound right!
