Hi Anthony, welcome to the forum.

:welcome:

As far as I know that is right, can't be absolutely sure. You could,probably phone DWP to ask? I had a long wait for ESA and DLA the first time, and it was all backdated.

I hope you enjoy the forum. It is a good place to find friendly people, help and advice.

Best wishes, Sarah

I am on PIP and waited over a year for it to be sorted, I had all of my money backdated when it was awarded to me.

I got both esa increase and pip backdated by a year too. I then got anxious about the amount they paid.
