    I just want to say Congratulations.  I am not in the UK so I have no idea how this process works.

    In the US they go from the date of FIRST application.

    I also was awarded benefits (in the US)...and I ALSO have been waiting since 2014...The TORTURE I have been thru with the worry and anxiety has probably taken 5 years off of my life.

    SO..I know the happiness and relief you are feeling.

    Hi Katie

    1stlt congrats

    I would just like to add ....if this was a NEW CLAIM ...in that you applied for PIP but where not in reciept of Disability Living Allowance ...and got it on your third try then it will be from date of your second appeal / third try

    And could ve back dated to the start of this claim as you where not in reciept of another disability benefit

    If however you where receiving DLA nothing will be backdated

    Hope that helps!
