Hello so I've spent the past 13 months waiting to get pip been a really difficult 3 years physically and mentally.. but I made claim in 2022 and finally got a text yesterday to say I've been awarded pip I should be due back pay but does anyone know when this would come in to my bank? As I've not had anything yet.

    That's a long time to wait for a decision! Once payment is made it takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank. You can ring PIP to ask when you'll receive it in your bank and they will tell you.
    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 @Gordi123, welcome to the community. Sorry you had to wait so long for your decision, and well done for getting through it all, it's not easy!

    As Poppy says above, it might be worth giving them a ring to check. Hopefully they can clear things up for you :)
