Good morning
Does anyone know what payment method pip use for back pay ? And how long it takes ? Do they use Bacs ? Or another method ... Most likely be by carrier pigeon I know the wheels turn slow at the dwp but any slower they will stop ...

    They use BACS, which takes 3 to 5 working days to go into your bank from the date payment was made.
    I see from a previous thread of yours that you were recently awarded by a Tribunal. see thread. https://forum.scope.org.uk/discussion/102042/tribunal-won-dont-give-up#latest
    After a Tribunal win it can take anything up to about 8 weeks to put your award into payment and pay what is owed.

    It's 3-5 working days depending on your bank. You can also ring PIP to ask when your money will be paid into your bank and they will tell you exactly which day.
