    Hi @thedoc
    pip rates are as follows from 8th April 2019.
    daily living £87.65 or £58.70
    mobility £61.20 or £23.20.
    The rates you have given are from April 2018 to 2019. Check your award notice and it should show an increase from the 8th April.

    Hi @thedoc
    If I was you I would give the DWP a call and ask them to clarify there should be a phone number on your award notice. The figures you have are from last year and can be found on the gov.uk site.
