PIP claim question

ryan1mcq Member Posts: 3 Listener
HI all, my name is Ryan, im a new member and my first post. I have looked for ages online for info on my question but i cannot find anything at all. My question is this, well its long question so please forgive the long post. Last year i took a nutritional neuropathy due to dysphagia from radiation therapy to my neck, so i lost the strength in my legs and have been in a wheelchair since July.

I applied for PIP in September while still in hospital and i have the assesors coming to the house on Friday for my assesment. The question is somewhat double barrelled,  will anything i get be backdated to the original claim date even though i was in hospital when i made the claim? Or will my claim start from the date i got home? Literally cannot find any info on this at all so would really appreciate some help.
