    It could be that they just wanted you to confirm the bank details and nothing more. A decision can take anything up to 12 weeks after the report was returned. Once a decision is made you will be contacted.

    If successfully awarded the first PIP payment will be about 7 weeks after the decision is made, One final DLA payment will be made inbetween that.

    If the PIP award is higher than the DLA award there will be no money owed to 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.
