    Hi @dmackinnon:

    Thanks for your post.

    I'm sorry to hear that this has happened.

    Are you disabled and receiving other benefits?

    Did your bank say anything as to why this may have happened?

    Hi, have you recently been awarded PIP? This happened to me and when I rang pension credit they said they had to reassess it, they did not however inform me this would happen. My PIP award was exactly the same as my previous DLA award, I did receive an apology and my money was immediately paid into my account.
