Backdated benefit claims

How do I make a backdated claim?

If you think you have good cause for making a late claim, you should tell us in writing straight away. You must tell us the period you want to backdate your benefit for and tell us why your claim is late.  For the period you want to backdate your benefit, we will need to see:

  • proof of your income
  • savings
  • rent payments
