Hi, I sent off for my pip review June of last year and got my decision in February (I think, I can’t remember the exact date off the top of my head but it was February), though I was granted it again for 3 years on standard rate I was a point off enhanced rate and been trying to get mobility which I then applied for mandatory reconsideration, last week I had a call off dwp wanting more info and this week I had a payment of £170 from them but yet to receive a letter about their decision, I’m just slight confused if this is a possible back payment but been tryna figure out where they’re backdating from(if it is that) any comments would be greatly appreciated as I’m pretty lost and having a bit of anxiety over it for some reason,

Thanks, N x

    That payment makes no sense to me. The only way to find out is to ring them in the morning when they open. 
    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’ve tried so many different ways and it’s been driving me insane over the past couple of days. Been putting off phoning them over my anxiety but will try tomorrow

    Definately give them a bell.  I initially thought it might be a backdated COL payment but the amounts not correct. Good luck tomoz. Hope you find out.

    Update - Finally got through to pip this afternoon,  they’ve awarded me enhanced and awarded the payment from the 2nd feb last month which is when they made the original decision.

    No worries. defiantly, can relax a bit now. Yeah I’m not really too bothered about not getting the mobility rate but been fighting for a while about getting the enhanced rate so it’s a relief now thank you
