What great news Diceman24. We should have a bell to ring when each members gets their correct award!

Your award is indefinate, which means that it does not have an end date, but they will review it periodically. How long that periodically is depends on the nature of your condition and whether or not they think it may improve. Unfortunately it sounds as if yours is not likely to improve, so it should be a long whilte before you hear from them again.

And yes, you are entitled to back pay, either to when you sent off your UC50 or three months after first giving UC a fit note (aka sick note), which ever is the shortest time.

I hope you can now relax and enjoy the freedom this award gives you.
