    No one can predict whether you will get a mobility award. You will need to wait for them to send you the decision letter, which you should receive within the next week.
    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.

    Usually money owed will be in your bank before you receive the decision letter. Once it’s paid it takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank.

    Do they pay you when the text was sent out or before the text

    If you want to know exactly when the money will be in your bank then you’ll need to ring PIP to ask.
