    Usually, CTC would be paid from the Award date, not back-dated.

    Which DLA components were included, this you did not state.

      Oh, I remember now you asking about claiming DLA about a month ago because your child has Beckwith Wiedemann Syndrome. I only remembered because my niece's daughter has it as well, she's 3 now, and was born with cancer, she has 2 more years in remission before she is classed as clear.

      Because it is only a short period I would assume it would be backdated to April 22nd 2015, it's only 4 weeks. When they look at months it can be backdated to the maximum of 13 months, I know that may sound strange but thats our Government Legislation for you.

      The HMRC are usually quick on backdating payments, usually 7-14 days maximum.

      Good luck with your baby, Nadine. smile

    hi there

    from previous experience in some cases tax credits will only back date payments for one month, as its a child your claiming for this may be different.

    take care and good luck.
