    Yes you will be paid what they have awarded you and they will back pay everything if you win your case. My friend was waiting more than a year to go to tribunal and I have appealed mine also but mine is bout 2 months waiting so far. It's hard to have £30 less each week but praying I will get it all back. Good luck xx

    Hello Maddisson69

    As detailed in the above post your daily living award will continue if you challenge the decision. As you have posted the challenge will be a mandatory reconsideration which must be lodged within 1 month of the date of the decision letter.

    It is also important to point out that when you challenge a decision, a decision maker can also consider the award that has already been made.  That is they can increase PIP, keep it at the same rate or take it away.  That is they can reach a decision that you are not entitled to PIP at all. This is not common but it can happen.
