    Hi,

    Once your PIP award is in place then you'll need to ring DWP to re-claim it. Claiming it over the phone is much quicker than filling out the form and could be as quick as just 1 week.

    Someone on here claimed it very recently over the phone and it took approximately 1 week.

    No problem. I would ring again to see if the award is in place, if it is then you can also check for the SDP at the same time.
