Hi everyone. First time ive posted on here so i do apologise if i go on a bit... 
So, in october 2018 i applied for universal credit and handed in a sicknote on the 21st so about 4 days later... i was sent a uc50 and had a assessment which i was found fit for work, i done a MR and was awarded LCW and told to STOP handing in sicknotes.... i appealed the MR and won my appeal on 29th april 2020 and now i am entitled to LCWRA. Im just wondering if i will get the full 15 months backpay that i think i am due... only reason im worried is because i was told to stop handing sicknotes in and everywhere that ive read it says you must hand sicknotes in with no gaps. Does this not apply to me because i had already been awarded LCW ? Any help would be much appricated.
