PIP and overnight stay in hospital

notanelephant Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hello everyone.

I recently received a tribunal decision in my favour but had no info on what was going to happen next. I called up PIP and the person on the phone informed me that payment services will need to ask me a few questions before they can send a payment out.

One of the questions they asked was if I had spent any time in hospital before or after my claim had stopped. I informed them that I had to spent one night in hospital after my PIP had stopped. I'm wondering if I should've said this and would like to ask you: Will this affect my claim, the decision at the tribunal or whether or not I'll have my claim backdated at all?

Thanks for reading.
