Hi to all
I have a question and I am hoping someone out there will be able to give me some help with the answer. I was in receipt of DLA and had to apply for PIP. I have been awarded enhanced on both which is great news I know as so many of you are having to fight for it so I do count myself as very lucky!! My question is I applied in Feb14 and had my result in July for pip to start in sept. My DLA was paid to me through this time but only low rate. I have been told that due to me still being paid DLA I do not get PIP backdated.
Is this correct? Due to the fact that I put the claim in in the Feb I didn't ask for my DLA to be reviewed when my condition changed. So are they correct in not backdating.
Many thanks to anyone who can answer this.
