I'm afraid there is no backdating of a PIP award where there was a DLA claim In payment, even if it the award is the result of a Change of Circumstances.

Even if the award went up ? Surely that means he was entitled to the encreased award from date I informed them ? Otherwise they could take months to make desicions to avoid paying ppl the extra money ?

I'm afraid this has been challenged an found to be legal.
