    As you transferred from DLA there's no money owed. You will receive 1 final payment of DLA and then your first PIP payment will be about 3/4 weeks later, so first PIP payment will be about 7 weeks after the decision was made.

    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.

    No, you are not owed any money. Even though you didn't have the care part of DLA you were still claiming DLA, which you transferred from. For this reason there's no money owed.
