Am I just getting muddled?

whistleswhistles Member Posts: 1,590 Disability Gamechanger
Budgeting is not my strong point. I don't read things properly and I tend to do an auto flap like chicken first.
So I thought I would include what the pip letter actually says.  :)

My last payment from DLA was 5 February. 
Decision made for pip award 23 February. 

They can award me from 28 March.
First payment is 19 April, what they owe since 28 March.
We will then pay you four weeks in arrears on a Thursday. 

Why is the award not starting from the decision, making the first payment March.
The amount payable is wrong, it should be £174 and its £184.79. This suggests something has gone a little wrong with their working out.

It's sort of reading that I won't have any money for ten weeks. That's me not working it out properly right?

Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    Hi whistles

    What is your PIP award ie standard care standard mob ?

    unless your DLA award ended it should continue for four weeks after your decision
    I will try and explain

    My pip is enhanced mobility.

    ah ok
    Enhanced mobility = £58 per week

    The payment of £ 184.79 is for 16 days 28th march - 19th april this will then put you onto a new four weekly pay cycle
    then every four weeks £58 x 4 = £232

    You should still receive DLA from 5th feb to 27th march
    Check that you have/not had a payment and if not you should ring DWP

    Thank you so much for taking the time to work this out for me. Much appreciated. It looked an odd amount.

    No problem
    it does look an odd amount, I never understand the odd pennies they seem to work in or out.
    Do check your DLA payments are being made, PIP should start the day after DLA stops, you should not be left without money

    That was VERY kind of you to work that out for him.
    I have fibromyalgia amoung others which put me in a muddle a lot of the time these day.
    Some don't understand how an adult can get muddled up. So thank you for being understanding
