Pip backdated money

My pip is currently under review and got extended to Jan 2025 while I wait for the review

1) if my pip goes up from standard daily living to increased daily living or any mobility will this be backdated from when I handed my review back in April 2023 or when the review is complete

2) if I get no points on my review do I have to pay back any money

    1/ Some are owed money and some are not. It really depends on what the decision maker decides. Normally for a review started by DWP there’s no money owed. Due to backlogs the decision maker is using their own discretion.

    2/ No you will not. 
    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.

    If I got 11 points and I understood they will give by law another 2 points in prompting so it will be automatically 4 points it means i am entliteld to full PIP instead of just dailly living..does anyone knows how it works?or even if this news is true even?

    No one is automatically entitled to any points. Whether points can be scored for an activity will depend on how your conditions affect you. 

    As we don’t know anything about your health conditions then it will be impossible to give any advice.

    Yes I understand what you’re saying and I understand the law changes but no one is automatically entitled to those extra points.

    But if I got 2 points prompting and it can be 4 because of this law then?

    They will consider whether 2 extra points can be awarded. As I advised I can’t tell
    you whether you would score extra points because I don’t know anything about your health conditions and how they affect you. 

    They are in the process of reviewing claimants that had a decision from 6th April 2016. 

    All decisions made since 17th September 2020 will not be looked at again.

    They gave me zero on social support but I never go to social situations without my husband who is my social support did they underscore me? My report has 9 points recommended this would entitle me to 13 points
