    This is the cold weather payment and has nothing to do with your PIP claim. As you're entitled to it then you must be claiming one of the qualifying benefits such as Income Related ESA, JSA, Income Support etc etc.
    Usually money is paid into your bank before you receive the letter. You will need to ring the department of the other benefit you're claiming and not PIP.

    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.
