I got a text through on Thursday 8am saying I had been awarded PIP ( unexpected) but it’s Sunday and not had any payment  through. When am I likely to get it by? I’m paranoid I gave them  the wrong bank details and they sent it elsewhere. Does the weekend affect it ?

    DWP don't make payments on weekends. It takes 3-5 working days to receive any money owed into your bank. I would expect you to receive it by middle of the week. 

    You can also ring PIP tomorrow when they open at 9am to ask what you've been awarded and when to expect payment into your bank and they will tell you.
