    Hello amonse and welcome to the scope community. The letter explains everything, it looks as if you will get paid your last DLA on the 19 then get your back pay on the 10th July then on the 19th July your Pip paid in arrears for the last four weeks you may be short of cash, ring DWP for an explanation.
