Re:A Good Outcome [Thanks].............Eventually 8 years 9 months ago #85855

Thank you for the feedback. Is there any merit in my thoughts about asking for backdating?

Hi,

When calculating the 'review' date, in most cases the DWP would follow the prognosis as given by the ATOS assessor.

That prognosis date is thus the 'review' date, calculated from the date the original decision was made.

THe DWP cannot just make a new Decision on your claim, so I suspect that a Recondiseration has taken place.

On this basis, and on the assumption the the original Fit for Work Decision was made as part of your transfer from IB, then I would expect their to be back payment from the closure of your IB claim to the date of the new letter.

Unfortunately, if you were talking to someone in the DWP call center, then what they say cannot be relied upon to be accurate or even applicable to your situation.

I would contact the DWP again to dind out what is going on.
