My friend was due her re assessment and in June it was sent off to DWP.
Her medical was in September, but DWP are saying that she is not entitled to back payment to date of claim?? As she was not left without money. Can you put me straight as this seems very strange considering her money went UP

So they were in the WRAG and then following this latest assessment they were moved to the Support Group?

Unless they notified the DWP of a Change of Circumstances then I'm afraid the SG award is only payable from when the Decision was made.
