PIP Payments

Hi All,
I’m just looking for some advice.
I won my tribunal on the 21st Feb.
Got a letter saying money would be backdated to August 2022.
I rang on Monday to get an update. I answered some questions about being in the country, not being in prison etc.
Also gave bank details.
Was told to ring today so they could tell me how much I will be getting and when payments will begin
Rang and nothing has been done. Told to ring on the 15th!
please can anyone tell me how long it takes to get payments.
This is making me really anxious😞

    Hi there @nicspe4678 and welcome to the community. :)

    Congratulations on your tribunal win, that must be a huge relief? 
    It can sometimes take a while for the information to filter down to the right people and for them to calculate any back pay owed, so please try not to worry too much.

    It’s perfectly normal for it to be up to 8 weeks after a Tribunal win to pay what is owed and to put your award into payment. You are still within that timescale. Hopefully it won’t be too much longer. 
    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.
