    Money owed will be in your bank account 3-5 working days after payment was sent. You can ring PIP to ask when to expect the money in your bank and they will tell you.

    Decision letter can take anything up to 2 weeks.

    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.

    Very odd why she couldn’t tell you when to expect it into your bank. If payment is sent they can usually tell you. For this reason payment may not have been sent yet.

    Is this a first time claim? and you haven't transferred from DLA?

    This may explain the confusion. If you rang PIP to report changes to your health condition if your new award is higher than your previous award you will be owed money from the date you rang to report the changes.

    If it was a review started by DWP and your new award is higher they don't usually backdate it to an earlier date and the extra money is paid from when the decision was made. However, due to the waiting times for review decisions a decision maker will use the own discretion and sometimes (not always) they will backdate to an earlier date, which could mean they owe you some money.

    For this reason you need to wait for the decision letter and it will give more details in their of whether any money is owed or not.

    When you first posted I assumed it was a new claim as you didn't say anything to suggest otherwise. Apologies for the confusion.

    I’m on the same level of award, enhanced care, enhanced mobility. Was given this again back in March through to March 2028, with a March 2027 planned review. It’s just the length of awards that I don’t like.

    They keep giving awards that are four years long for me. The thing is with PIP, they don’t link it to the condition. They just base it on the 12 activities. In the long run, I really want the structure of PIP to change, they need to link it to the condition more. DLA did that, PIP doesn’t. If your condition is long-term and won’t get better, like me with autism, they need to stop putting you through constant reassessments. It’s ridiculous It doesn’t work right now.
