    Not sure but somebody will correct me I think its the date of your pip award it will all be explained in your award letter of what your sons award is regarding daily living and mobility, start date and length of the award when payments start there will be no overlap,of payments.

    Hi,

    If successful, first payment will be 4 weeks after the last DLA payment. DLA/PIP is paid 4 weeks in arrears and the DLA will be paid for a further 4 weeks after the decision. When transferring from DLA, PIP is not backdated. Full details will be in the award letter, if successful. Good luck.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
