Missing PIP Pay

I usually get paid today, but I haven’t. 

FYI I recently had an assessment after I submitted a change of circumstances. I haven’t received the decision letter yet, but I am aware that my award had reduced. 

Do I now owe the DWP money? Is that why I haven’t received anything today?

Any insight or advice appreciated please.

    Yes potentially you may owe them a small amount, depending on when the decision was made. The only way to know your answer is to ring them. 
    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.

    The payment day can change when you get a new decision in my experience.
