It is best to ask for backdating when you fill in your claim form for Housing Benefit. You should include a statement as to why you did not claim before.
This could be if: You should give us as much information and supporting evidence as possible.
This process is not backdating, it is what the law says must happen when you apply.
This rule also applies to men over pension credit age but less than aged 65 who are NOT in receipt of Income Support, Job Seeker’s Allowance (Income based) or Employment and Support Allowance (Income Related).
This would be for the period between when you want your award of Housing Benefit to start and when you actually make your claim.
Income support is payable from the date printed on the form, when they send it out to you; which is, or should be, the date you first rang up to ask about claiming it.
The OP sounds as though s/he made the claim at the right time, but due to the inefficiency of the department, the claim has not been dealt with in a timely fashion.
You will need to prove "good cause" for not applying earlier.
If a different benefit were to be correct, it's possible there could be 'waiting days'.
