Payment confusion

dmworsdmwors Member Posts: 18 Connected
Hi. Ive been in receipt of PIP Standard Daily Living Allowance and was assessed and awarded Enhanced Living Allowance and standard Mobility from 5 January 2018. I have continued to receive Standard Daily Living Allowance for 5 January, 5 February and 5 March of £222.60. Should i receive an extra payment in March for 5 Jan to 5 Feb for the increase? Thanks in advance.

    hi dmwors

    What is the date of your decision letter ?
    you should be receiving £420.40

    You should ring the DWP for an explaination

    Hi and thanks for your reply. The letter came on Monday and said the decision was from 5 January 18 as this was my f-f and also my existing pip payment date. Am i due the difference for one month? Do they pay in arrears?

    PIP is paid four weeks in arrears, but your decision letter should tell you the amount due. You should have received the increase in febuary.
    A phone call to DWP is needed to sort it out

    Letter states decision from 5 January 2018 and amount awarded from this date. I have received £222,60 on 5 jan/Feb/March. Just checked my bank and there is a payment of £191.71 today. Is this correct.

    It doesn't seem to tie up with any amout.
    The only way is to ring DWP for an explaination

    Thanks. I will do as they had assessed in January and failed to inform me. Only just received the letter. So they do make mistakes. Thanks again. X

    Cockney Rebel. Just a quick update. You were correct. They had only released a part payment (mistake) so have corrected this. Thanks for your help.
