    Good news. If it was me i'd be asking questions about that first application. How did you apply? by post or phone? Did you receive the PIP2 form?
    Thinking about this more, maybe money owed from this award will be from the date you first applied in January.
    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.

    I would wait until you receive the decision letter to see when the money owed is paid from and then take it from there. You may have some idea when the money goes into your bank, which is 3-5 working days after payment was sent.
