Hi, I applied for dla for my daughter back in January this year and received a decision in April to say she had been awarded low rate care. I appealed against this decision, which was successful, and she was then awarded middle rate care and low rate mobility at the end of June. I put in a application for carers allowance when I received the new decision, around 5 weeks ago, and put on the form the date I wanted to claim from was the 26th of February (as that is when she turned 5 so that is the date they awarded her new rate from). My question is how long will my carers allowance be back dated till? It's currently taking up to 8 weeks for them to make a decision which I haven't received as of yet. Thanks in advance for any help.
