Blubbering wreck !

To say I’m a blubbering wreck is mild 🫤 just sat down and feeling low this morning then my phone goes off and it’s a text from DWP saying I’ve been awarded PIP !!
I did not know if I would receive one as it was a tribunal hearing I had so did not know if I would hear anything 🫤 but 5 minutes ago the text came through .
I know it sounds silly 😞 but I have fought and fought for years to get PIP never been strong enough to see it through to a tribunal up until last year and now at last it’s happened .
Sorry if I’m a pain 😞 but yourselves have got me through some rough days with worrying about it !

with me getting the text does that mean my money will arrive soon ? 
Thank you

    It means your award has been put into payment and you should receive the money that’s owed soon. Once payment is made it takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank. 
    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.

    You can ring PIP to ask them when to expect payment into your bank and they will tell you.

    You won’t lose it. They asked that question because of safe guarding issues because it’s a large payment.
