    Once payment is made it takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank. You can also ring PIP to ask what you've been awarded and when to expect payment in your bank and they will tell you.

    Textphone: 0800 121 4493

    Hey there @fay1119 welcome to the community!  How're you on this crisp autumn day?

    I'm guessing you got some good PIP news?

    Hi, I am wondering the same, but regarding backpay. I got a text over a week ago about being awarded PIP and that I would get a letter within 2 weeks. I did phone and through the automated system got a date of 30th Nov for first payment and the amount. The amount didn't coincide with any combination of PIP rates so I'm already confused on that. I then received a call from a case manager 3 days ago to say I was awarded enhanced for both, and to check I was okay and had support to help if I were to receive the backpayment in one. But she also added it was with a manager for approval and could change, but not likely. Can they overturn it after already telling me!? Why would they? Other than due to large backpayment. Seems so dodgey to me. She said when approved payment would be made. So now I'm very anxious and upset, checking the post daily, checking bank daily. Nothing. It seemed.a bit cruel to ring a tell me about the award but then say it could change. And why I the automated system telling me an amount about £45 lower than enhanced for both should be? I have (alleged) TC overpayments (that's another story I could do with support and advice on!) already taken from UC so surely it can't be taken from both? It was already reduced as agreed hardship. I've got debts to clear with this backpayment so I'm so worried they are going to try to take it all too. Amy 💕

    @Amy262 the automated payment line has been known to give incorrect information so you shouldn’t rely on that. 

    For the money that’s owed to you then I’d advise you to ring PIP to ask because they are the only ones that can answer your question.
