PIP confusion

Franknfurter122 Community member Posts: 6 Connected
I had a text on the 27th of march to say  decision had been made on my review.

I was due a payment on the 28th which never materialised.
I assumed this meant my review had failed but i was told pip is paid in arrears so i should still have gotten the most recent payment. 

Is it likely my pip has been stopped or is there another reason for the payment not to have come.
 I know new pip payments take 3 to 5 working days to come through after a decision, is this the same with reviews?

    Hi the bottom line is that we don't know, my advice would be to phone them, 9 a.m is the best time before they get too busy.

    Agreed with woodbine and you will need to ring them to ask what the decision was. If you were awarded then payments would continue at your new rate, depending on when the decision was made. 

    If you've been refused then whether there's any money for your next payment will depend on when the decision was made. Only PIP can answer those questions for 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.
