Has anyone claimed the marriage allowance?

How much did you get back? Some sites say £212 and some say £422 (ish)
I can't work out how long it should take either, some people saying it's only sent out at certain times of the year. confused

I have, you don't get it back as such, just get a slightly higher tax allowance so over the year pay a little less tax

You can get last year's backdated. I applied from the outset so didn't get a rebate but DH paid less tax.

I've just double checked the email and it says they will send a cheque with any previous years tax we are owed

I think it only backdates to April 2015 though (sadly!)
