    Does PIP get backdated to claim date?

    Does PIP get backdated to claim date? 12th Aug 14 at 10:08 PM

    Just a quick query regarding PIP benefits. If a claim is agreed, does the money get paid from this date, or does it get backdated to the date you originally rang up to start your claim?

    I have tried searching for this, but can't seem to get a straight answer. I was hoping someone here might be able to help.

    Apologies if I have managed to miss something obvious somewhere!

    Just in case no-one filled you in:

    MR = Mandatory Review

    That's not really very helpful. Statistically speaking so far that is the case, but more cases are being reviewed before appeal now so even if a mandatory reconsideration is unsuccessful, there is a chance just appealing it will trigger a review and it doesn't go all the way to a tribunal. And even if it does, tribunal outcomes are usually fair so people recieve all the entitlement backdated to the original claim date.
