Hi everyone, I have suffered with my health for around 7 years but only recently had a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and have other health investigations ongoing due to regular spontaneous blackouts. I woke to a message 2 mornings ago saying I had finally been awarded pip and to wait 2 weeks for the letter explaining everything. 

How long roughly does it take payments to come through please

Many thanks

    Money owed is usually in your bank 3-5 working days after payment was sent. You can ring PIP in the morning when they open at 9am to ask what you've been awarded and when to expect the money owed into 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.
