    Hi,

    If your PIP claim is successful and you're transferring from DLA then there's no back pay. If it's a first PIP claim then it's back dated to the date you started your claim.

    ESA and PIP are totally different. When did you start your claim for PIP? Do you know what you've been awarded?

    It's possible that you've not been awarded what you expected, so less back dated money to receive.

    PIP amounts are here. Maybe you can work out what award you received base on these. If not, then you can either ring DWP tomorrow to ask what award you received or wait for the award letter.
    Daily living - standard rate£57.30
    Daily living - enhanced rate£85.60
    Mobility - standard rate£22.65
    Mobility - enhanced rate£59.75

    That's great news. You said you think you've been underpaid, were you hoping for a higher award?

    Hi,

    When transferring from DLA to PIP there's no backpay, even if the PIP award is higher than the DLA award was.
