Tx from DWP saying I'm awarded PIP

mckee70 Community member Posts: 2 Listener
 I applied for PIP last August, had my telephone consultation last week, received a tx saying they'd sent it off to be reviewed the Monday at 8am received a tx saying I'd been awarded PIP and id get a letter within a few weeks.
I was surprised cos I didn't think it went well and wouldn't get it.
I've read that after receiving the txt it s usually about 3-5 days before receiving any payment.
Is this right and should i get my payment this week then?
I was also worrying that I might have received this tx by mistake, has anyone heard of anyone getting took this by mistake.

    It's unlikely that it was sent in error. Many people receive texts saying they've been awarded. Money owed usually takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank from the date payment was sent. 

    You can ring PIP to ask what you've been awarded and also ask when to expect any 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.
