I’ve aplied for severe disability premium on top of my ESA as I claim PIP so I am entitled to this I have been claiming pip since April 2016 and ESA since may 2015.
Does anyone know if I am entitled to back pay from April 2016... This will be around £62 a week so it’s well over 4K
When I made the claim over the phone I asked about backpay and he said yes but he doesn’t know how far it’ll get backdated from and suggested 3Months but I did mention to him that it’s a premium and not a benefit and he admitted that he doesn’t know how long it will actually go back then.
Has anyone ever received a backpay for severe disability premiums?
The reason it’s took so long for me to apply is because I only received a letter last week when my PIP claim was re-looked at and extended for another 3Years without medical.
It said extra money - severe disability premium and they asked questions if I had a carer which I don’t and if I am single which I am. So that’s when I called them up and done it over the phone.
Thank you in advance
