    Is there any reason why you didn't report your health condition and the fit note in February of this year?
    You need to report your health condition now and then submit the fit note. It's unlikely they will accept the backdated fit note (but it will be down to a decision maker to make that final decision) and your waiting period will start from when you reported your health condition.
    As you're claiming Carers allowance you're not affected by the benefit cap anyway. https://www.turn2us.org.uk/Benefit-guides/Benefit-Cap/Am-I-affected-by-the-Benefit-Cap

    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.
