Hi all I recently was awarded PIP got my text Monday morning, how long did it take for you all to get your letter after the text ?

Also does the claim go from the date you claimed or the date they received the form as I can't work out from my payment what rate they have given me

    It can take up to a couple of weeks to receive the letter. 

    It is paid from the date you rang to start your claim providing you weren’t transferring from DLA and/or you had the difficulties for at least 3 months before you applied. It takes 3-5 working days to go into your bank from the date payment was sent.

    You can ring PIP to ask what the award is and when to expect anything that’s owed 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.

    When  I last claimed they sent me a text to say they had made a decision and then a day or so later a DM rang me to tell me I what i had been awarded. Looking at recent comments of people waiting for decisions, it doesn't seem to be that common for a DM to ring.
