Unexpected PIP payment

Hi all, I've just seen on my bank account a PIP payment is supposed to go through tomorrow (Friday 23rd December 2022) which is bizarre as it doesn't fit the payment window I was given on my decision letter - I was paid Wednesday 7th December 2022 and then wasn't expecting any payment until Wednesday 4th January 2022, as it said paid every 4 weeks on a Wednesday. Should I be concerned that they've paid me too much or is it just because of Xmas/New Year and they pay everyone early (although 4th January isn't a holiday?)

    Your PIP being due on 4th Jan doesn't fall into the early payment window, which you can see here all the early payment dates. https://www.gov.uk/how-to-have-your-benefits-paid
    Although you received the money that was owed on 7th Dec, when your next payment is due will depend on what dates the money owed covered. It will tell you this information in your decision letter.


    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
