    PIP is a weekly benefit paid every 4 weeks and not monthly. If your award previously was standard Daily living then this would be £272.40 every 4 weeks. (£68.10/week) 

    Enhanced daily living is £101.75/week, which is £407 every 4 weeks. You would be owed the difference between the two, which is £33.65/week. 

    How much you're owed will depend on how many weeks you're owed and what the cut off date was for the money that was owed. You said 5 months so if it's 20 weeks then it would be £673 that you're owed. 

    There's a PIP payment calculator here but you will need to put the date which it was awarded from and the date in which they paid you up until into the calculator. It will then tell you how much you're owed. pip-payment-calculator-form
    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.

    Do you think the decision was incorrect at all? You can appeal your review decision if you believe it is incorrect. You can read more about it here: Appealing a DWP decision | Disability charity Scope UK
