    Hi @Terrinewman,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you here.

    I'm glad to hear that your appeal was successful - congratulations!

    Is this for PIP? When it comes to backdated payments, I believe the average time is around 6 weeks. However, if it goes beyond this and you would like to find out about the progress with your claim, then the contact number for ongoing claims is 0345 850 3322.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, then please do get in touch.

    My backdated PIP was paid after three weeks and first new rate payment about a week later.
