    Unfortunately, you're not entitled to this first payment. To be entitled you must have been entitled to a payment of UC for an assessment period that ended between 27th Jan and 26th Feb 2023. Your first assessment period was 7th Feb to 6th March, which ended after the qualifying criteria.

    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.

    For the £150 the qualifying criteria is "you must have received a payment for 1st April. (rather than on 1st April) You will be entitled because you're claiming PIP.

    I don’t know how you can predict that it will be paid late. Payments are to be made between 20th June and 4th July. Soph1993 has just been awarded so there’s plenty of time left before payments start.

    You can’t assume that the same thing will happen to someone else.
