Hi! Help required with recent text from DWP/PIP

Hi all

I apologise if this kind of thing gets asked all the time. 

So I was awarded standard daily living and standard mobility a couple of years ago totalling £380 every four weeks. 

I had a review assessment in January 2024 and have today received a text saying “ Your PIP review is complete. You should receive your decision letter in 2 weeks.”

I rang PIP as I know there is an automated section that tells you when your next payment is due. However it said I have a payment of £314.16 due on 19 February. 

Surely this number cannot be correct? Could someone advise please! And will it likely take 2 weeks to get the letter?

    Hi @kayteelou - & welcome to the community. Your question is absolutely fine. The automated phone line has been incorrect on many occasions, so don't worry about that.
    Until a decision is made, you will continue to get your normal £380 every 4 weeks. You could try ringing the PIP enquiry line if a decision has been made, & they should be able to tell you exactly what that decision is rather than waiting for the letter.

    Hi! Unfortunately they’ve not given me mobility this time round just standard daily living which is a bit disappointing but I’m grateful that I’ve got at least something! X
