When you make a claim for ESA you get paid the assessment rate of £71.70 for the first 13 weeks. From week 14 you get the full rate. So just count backwards to week 14 and that's the week your money will be backdated to. How long it takes to get your backdated money varies. Mine took only a week but fir some it us much longer. I would email them, copy in your MP, and ask. Hope that Helios. Tessa x
