Pip backpayment

swiftiemazzie Community member Posts: 1 Listener
So I received a text telling me I had been awarded pip. I first applied back on the 4th July 2022 so this should be the date my pip claim is backdated too. I have today seen a payment due into my bank of £203 from DWP PIP and I am just trying to work out what this could be because I have looked at all the different payment amounts for pip and this amount just does not add up to the time passed for it to be a backpayment so was wondering if anyone could help. Thank you

    We would only be guessing - to find out you’ll need to ring them.
