How far back will the PIP be backdated if successfully reinstated?
I received PIP for a couple of years because of severe medical problems that will not improve. At a reassessment, Pip was removed December 2016. To cut a long story short, the DWP advised me to apply for PIP again, so I did this late 2017 and was refused, I asked for a M.R, as the reasoning did not 'make sense' if I am awarded PIP will this be back dated to December 2016, as it should not have been removed, or will it be forwarded to the later re-reassessment of 2017? This does not seem fair if this is the case, as by reawarding it surely they were wrong to remove it in December 2016?
