ESA re-assesment

HI I wonder if someone can offer me some advice:

I am currently supporting one of our tenants. He has been on ESA (IR) since the 20.07.18 and he was placed in the WRAG group on the 18.12.18.

He was re-assessed on the 31.05.19 and a decision was made on the 07.11.2019 that he was to be placed the support group.

I have looked in CPAG but I cant seem to find any thing re being re-assessed and to when the Support Group element should be awarded. They have allocated the extra support group element in his ESA as from when the decision was made by DWP which was the 07.11.19 and it has not been backdated to when he was assessed.

I just need to make sure that I should not request a late MR on this matter.

Many thanks

Did the client request a supersession themselves or did DWP reassess of their own volition?

It was the DWP

Then I think it should take effect from the date DWP initiated things.
If you’re looking in this year’s CPAG you can find more detail at p1304.
