You should have made sure to get the certificate in time from the doctor and away to them with time to spare.
As soon as thy process the late certificate they will probaby backdate your payment. Phone them using job centre phones if necessary and speakto someone who can check if the certificate has now been processed and also can release your payment within hours if everything is okay.

The benefit system has now got very tough - if you are told to jump through a hoop at a certain time, make sure you do it or they will stop your money without any hesitation.

They may now restart your claim, possibly with it back-dated, but not necessarily - or they may insist on you starting again and making a new claim, which will take a few weeks. I do not have enough information about your claim to predict what they will decide. There is no longer any emergency help from DWP - responsibility for that was transferred to the local councils last year, so contact your council to see if they have anything left in their emergency fund. By this stage of the financial year a lot are empty, so you might be told to wait till April.

This has happened a few times - from previous results:

You could of just walked into ANY open JOBCENTER PLUS and handed in the cert and got a reciept.

The cert is only accepted from when THEY get it - so the claim will run from when it arrived.

There is no financial support available, they stopped crisis loans, and if you get benefits you need to tell the council because they probably have not paid your rent either.

It is your responsiblity to ensure everything is in good time, they are a pain in the backside at the best of times, dont go giving them more excuses NOT to pay you.

They might take pity on you and backdate, however its highly unlikely.

You'll no longer get D.L.A. as any change in circumstances ends entitlement so a lapse in a claim ends it. You'll need to apply for P.I.P., be reassessed and wait for the outcome. Getting advice would be wise, contact the charity connected with your condition, or speak to someone at the C.A.B.
