TOPIC: Back dating of PIP

Back dating of PIP 1 year 4 months ago #157847

Thanks to the invaluable help of Benefit and Work I have been awarded lower level of PIP - Even though I was currently getting DLA which is due to finish next month I thought my PIP would be backdated to when I made my claim in February but according to the DWP letter they do not back date. Does anyone have experience of this?

Congratulations on the award.

I'm afraid there is no back dating of PIP awards where the claimant was receiving DLA.
