Unable to access older time machine backups after turning file vault off?

I’ve had FileVault turned one since I purchased my Mac. I recently turned it off and I’ve found that I can no longer access my older backups from when FileVault was enabled. Is there any way to gain access to these backups or will I have to turn FileVault back on again? Thanks!

Edit : by access, I mean through the time machine UI when I hit “Enter time machine”. In preferences, time machine can see the older backups as it says the oldest backup is the day I set time machine up. However, it refuses to let me navigate beyond the backups I made after I turned FileVault off whenever I enter time machine.
