Hi folks I applied for pip 18/3/2022 and got denied. I done the MR and got denied again. On the 23/1/2023 it went to tribunal and I got awarded standard rate daily living. 4/2/2023 got a call from dwp asking if I had been in hospital and last digits of bank account and that they were calculating my award and any back pay. I called the dwp this morning 6/2/2023 and the automated payment line said I would be getting a payment on 5/4/2023. Does anyone know if this sounds correct? Having to wait another 2 months for my first payment? 
Thanks for looking

    The automated payment line will only give details of your 4 weekly payments, it won't give details of any money they owe you. Even with 4 weekly payments it often gives incorrect information. Once the money is paid, it takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank.
    When you receive your decision letter from DWP it will tell you what day of the week your payment will be made and when your money owed is paid up until. From there you will be able to count the weeks to see when your first 4 weekly payment will be.
    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.

    Looks wrong - the automated line is known to have errors. You should get a letter from DWP confirming what you will be paid and when but I may take a while for the letter to arrive.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    @Frantastic1888, im guessing you've resolved this now, but roughly how long did your letter or payment take to arrive? I'm in the same boat and had the phone call ... I'm just curious to find out what wait time you had before payment or letter 

    Many thanks

    Once payment is made it takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank. Usually you receive payment before the decision letter.

    Some people wait up to about a week after the phone call you had and others waiting longer. There really isn't any timescales at this point.
