    Hi @rasberry congratulations on your award!

    if you just times the weekly amount by 4, then you'll have your monthly figure.
    There's 52 weeks in the year, so you'd times the weekly number by 52 to get the yearly figure.  I hope that helps. :)

    PIP isn't paid monthly. It's a weekly benefit paid every 4 weeks. If you want to work out the monthly amount then you times the weekly amount by 52 and then divide it by 12. Although doing this wouldn't be right anyway because it's not paid monthly. 

    There will be 1 month a year where you will receive 2 payments.

    That wouldn't work because there's 4.3 weeks in a month and not 4. 
    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.

    In what way do you think you have been paid short ? I can only repeat what you have already been told your award will be £x and that will be paid every 4 weeks, so multiply £x by 4 and thats what you get, you will get this payment 13 times a year because 13x4=52(weeks).

    You keep referring to it as "per month" it's not per month, it's 4 weekly.

    What award exactly do you have? Is it your 4 weekly payment that you think is wrong or a lump sum from money that's owed?
