    You will need to have agreed with the installments before they go ahead. It won't be a lump sum before the installments start.  Did you ask them how much you will receive for each installment? Only they can tell you the answer to this. I'd advise you to ring PIP to ask.
    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.

    Hi @debbiedoodar, welcome to the community. Looks like Poppy has already given you some advice, and it does sound like it would be a good idea to ring PIP to clear things up.

    Just so you know, I've popped your post over to our PIP section where more members can see it to offer their experiences should you need any more help.

    Hope you can find out more about your back payments soon, feel free to ask any more questions you might have. Our members are very knowledgeable and supportive :)
