Question about pip and hospital

mika94 Community member Posts: 11 Listener
Hello I've been in hospital since last Thursday and I'm sectioned I know from previous admissions that my pip and premiums stop will I still get the pip payment on the 28th day? That's what's confusing me or will it stop on the 28th and keep going until I'm back in community any help appreciated

    The day you go in and come home doesn't count. It stops after the 28th day in hospital. The Severe disability Premium also stops because this is linked to daily living PIP.
    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.
