Hi. 2 calls from DWP, is it anything to be concerned about please?

So, I put in for PiP in December I’ve done all my assessments etc and it said it was with a decision maker. 
Over the past two days I have had two calls from pip that said 
“Would you be able to handle a large amount of backdated money” so i said “yes that’s fine as I don’t handle my finances anyway my step mom does” everything was fine and dandy with that. 
Then this afternoon they ring back again asking When I went off sick and came out of work due to my health conditions so I told them and then they asked how many times a month I collected my meds and I said once a month but I have no control over this as I’m suicidal. 
Has anyone had anything like this before and is it anything to be concerned about please?
