    It has been known for the PIP automated payment line to give incorrect information so you shouldn't rely too much on that.

    For reviews, if you're refused it's highly unlikely they would owe you any money because PIP payments would stop after a refusal. This is because any new decision overrules your current award regardless of how long you have remaining on the award.

    If the decision is a higher award and it was a review started by DWP then they don't always pay you the difference between your old award and new award. The decision maker will use the own discretion whether to backdate it to an earlier date.

    If they owe you any money then it would be paid seperately to you usual 4 weekly payment.

    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.
