    Once payment was made it takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank.
    You can ring PIP to ask what you’ve been awarded and when to expect money into your bank and they will tell you. 
    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.
