Hi all, Im new to this site and was looking for an answer to a query I have and there seems to be a lot of conflicting information on it on some forum sites.
I will start at the beginning, my daughter who has ASD had been on DLA low rate mobility and middle rate care for many years and her 5-yr award was due to end in Sept 15. Due to the change over to PIP we were invited to apply for this in May 15 and were rejected with 0 points (laughable) after the most distressing medical I personally had ever been through never mind her, we were rejected again after a MR. We went to a first-tier tribunal on 24/11/15 which we won 12 points - enhanced rate care. During this whole appealing process my daughters DLA was ended on 22/7/15 and no further payments were received. The PIP award is from 29/7/15-29/7/18. My question is even though we are a transfer from DLA, having received no benefit at all from July, am I correct in thinking that she will get backpay from 29/7/15 till now. Any advice would be appreciated. Its been a long process and exhausting having to constantly fight but we got there in the end.
