Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024

Under guidance from the Electoral Commission and Charity Commission, it's important that Scope remains politically neutral during General Elections.

While we understand that this period will see many passionate discussions and do not want to discourage open discussion, we cannot allow discussions which are purely intended to influence voting.

As ever, please make sure that your comments remain respectful of other people's opinions and keep to our online community house rules.

Hi, my name is Cath1972! Waiting for back pay, should I chase them to find out when I'll get it?

edited April 30 in Start here and say hello!
I have had my PIP renewal phone call saying that they are changing my dialy rate to the higher level and my motorbility is staying as it is.
The guy told me I will get my new rate from my next payment date, ( May).BUT he said that they owe me money from last July. I have had a letter saying this, but it hasn't said when or how much the back pay will be. Its been 11 days since I got the call and 7 days since I got the letter. 
Should I chase them or just wait

    Hi @Cath1972, welcome to the community. I'll pop your post over to our PIP section where members can find it more easily, I just wanted to say hello and welcome first! 

    If you're worried about it, perhaps you could try ringing the enquiries line again to see if they can give you an idea of what to expect? I hope it comes through soon!
