Dla payment

Pascoe25Pascoe25 Member Posts: 10 Listener
Hello

I'm going over to pip on the 14th of August but this morning received my last dla payment. Will I receive anymore from dla because it's only the 7th today?

Thanks

    HI,

    If that's your last DLA payment then this means you won't receive anymore. Your next payments will be PIP. Check your PIP award and it will tell you on there when to expect payment and for how much.

    Hello

    That's why I'm confused. My letter says dla ends 13th then pip kicks in from the 14th. I don't know that today's payment is my last one but just seems strange to receive it a week before it ends. 

    Thanks

    All I can tell you from my experience, is when I moved from DLA to PIP i lost a weeks payment of DLA @Pascoe25
    ⬇️
    I created one of the campaign election videos for Labour, and Jeremy Corbyn,
    This is a new version of Emeli Sande, Hope "You Are Not Alone
    I highlighted everything that's wrong with this country from benefits, NHS, UC etc, but now we have to put up with the hate now that is the Tories.

    When was your last DLA payment and was the payment you received today, your usual amount? DLA is paid 3 weeks in arrears and a week in advance. PIP is paid 4 weeks in arrears.

    My last full dla was on the 24th for £234.80 which is the middle care. Today I had £117.40 which is two weeks of middle care. I just thought I'd have my last payment close to the end date.
