edited July 2023 in PIP, DLA, and AA
Being trying to keep myself distracted but anxiety has kicked in “again” I rang PIP Tuesday or weds can’t remember as I still haven’t received my back pay yet and they said it says on my file / case that it’s due to be paid  for the 10 th July now I’m stressing and worrying it won’t be paid then 🫤
Not sleeping or eating because I’m getting so stressed 😩

    If they told you the 10th then that's when you'll receive it. I've never known them to be incorrect about when money will go into your bank and i'm speaking from personal experience.

    There's really nothing to worry or stress about.
    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.

    Thank you . I can’t settle until I know it’s in my bank unfortunately and then I can breathe a sigh of relief !

    If your bank is one that releases funds on a Saturday for payments going in or out on a Monday then you may receive it in the early hours of tomorrw morning. I do know some banks still do this, mine doesn't anymore. Some banks are just after midnight, mine is sometime after 3am.

    Mine doesn’t I’m a Saturday . But on as Sunday night for some reason any money I’m due is always paid just after 11 pm 🫤 but any other time Monday - Friday it’s after or just before 1 am so hopefully Sunday night it will be there

    Yes that’s the plan when she wakes and gets up . When she’s had a episode she sleeps as she’s exhausted so I just let her rest .
    But we will watch Ru Paul when she’s up
