Reply To: Backdating – second opinion needed!


I agree with Andy.

I understand what you mean by the test and the claimant having to show good cause but, this is personal experience from friends and the way they have been having to cope with fibromyalgia over a couple of decades now, is backdating an objective or subjective test?

I would have to say it is an objective test, in my mind anyway, everyone is different and how they approach difficulties (However the decision maker perceives that particular difficulty) is still a difficulty in that individual’s experience especially when there is a history of facts/evidence available.
