Hi ginger,

If this is a fresh claim then, if you return the form late, your award - if you get one - will run from the date the DWP receive it rather than the date you asked for the form.

It's a tough decision whether to send it in partly completed and hope that they don't make a decision before you send the additional information or whether to miss out on the backdating.

If neither of these appeal and the reason you need help completing the form relates to your health condition, you could contact the DWP again and say you are asking for an extension as a reasonable adjustment under the Disability Discrimination Act - see our guide to 'Getting better treatment from the DWP' in the members area.

Good luck,

Steve
