    Hello @Rayafk   Pleased to meet you welcome.
    I do not know what the answer is and I am afraid not too clear what you mean.

    Far as I know if you have a benefit query I am sure one of our team or members of our community will or might know.

    Have you rung up DWP a suggestion I know any queries on benefits they usually might answer your question.

    Have you seen our advice on benefits another solution maybe.

    Hope that helps.

    Take care

    Hello @Rayafk and welcome to the community.

    These are two different benefits so comparing them directly like this is probably not helpful.

    It does sound like that after the PIP assessment your needs were assessed as being higher than what you were previously receiving.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    When you transfer from DLA to PIP you'll receive 4 weeks money as your final DLA payment. Then you PIP will start 4 weeks after that. If you still don't understand then give PIP a ring and ask them. They will know your dates and amounts etc. We wouldn't be able to help with that because everyone's  payments are different.
