    If they owe you any money then you will receive that first and it will be in your bank 3-5 working days after payment was sent, unless you transferred from DLA and then you won't be owed any money.

    Your first 4 weekly payment will be about 4 weeks later. You will receive your decision letter in the next couple of weeks and it will tell you what you've been awarded, where you scored the points and what day of the week to expect your 4 weekly payments.
    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.

    Are you already receiving DLA? If not and you have phoned the PIP helpline and the automated system has told you the 27th December, this is not a reliable way to confirm future payments and if you are owed any back payments these are processed separately anyway. Please see Poppy's explanation above.
