    Hi,

    I'm afraid the only way to know an answer to your question is to ring DWP and ask why. We wouldn't be able to tell you why they've taken money from your payments.

    Hell hello, you will have to do what our good and great lady said, phone DWP who pay you the money and enquire why the deductions and still paying the same award amount monies.

    I rang them they said its because they only paid me 23 days instead of 28 ?confuseing no overpayment just because of the dates my DLA ended n the Day my PIP started ? but thankyou for your advice

    That will be correct. When transferring from DLA to PIP because of the way it's worked out your first PIP payment is 3 weeks after your last DLA payment. Your next PIP payment will be for the correct amount.
