    Welcome to the community, @Tommy35!

    As the others have said, waiting times can vary and there can be a backlog, but please do keep us updated: fingers crossed things will move forwards soon!

    I phoned up the same as you did on Monday and told my decision, the lady then told me I would be awarded it from march and told me the amount it was fairly large,, then I had a call to my mobile from the dwp it was the same lady she told me the decision marker had got the sum of money wrong and said that she was awarding me more she looked into my case after are phone call I might not of ever got that extra money if she didn't look into it,,, sorry I can't be of more help but thats what happened, in my case so they do pay backdated money as they did with me,, maybe ring them again and ask for a explanation it can't hurt,, I find some call handlers really good and some useless it's really luck of the draw,, I find the Irish office super helpful I don't know if anyone else agrees with that

    A change from dla
  • Tommy35Tommy35 Member Posts: 10 Listener
    No I was never on dla,, , I was on pip and they reviewed it 
  • Susie55Susie55 Member Posts: 76 Connected
    Perhaps that is why im not having backdated money as i am changing from DLA to PIP and not a review do you think
  • Tommy35Tommy35 Member Posts: 10 Listener
    If you was on dla they don't pay back payments that's what I have read anyway

    There's no backdated payments when transferring from DLA.

    Your DLA should be paid for four weeks following the decision, the your PIP award comes into payment
