P.i.p back payment from tribunal

Ben2303Ben2303 Member Posts: 24 Connected
Hi everyone, 

I am just wondering how to figure out how much I’m owed back from my p.i.p. Benefit.

As you all probably knew I had to attend a tribunal to appeal as I lost my full benefit, but they now have awarded standard daily living component back.

    HI,

    Standard daily living is £58.70 per week from April 2019. You just need to count the amount of weeks it took from the time the original decision was made.

    So just need to calculate £58.70 from the date when they originally stopped my claim??? 

    Apologies to come across dumb, my academic side of me isn’t too good

    Yes but £58.70 is the rate from 8th April 2019, it was slightly less than that before the increase.

    Does Poppy's comment clarify everything @Ben2303?

    Thank you both for your replies.

    What I’m finding difficult to work out is knowing how much I’ll be receiving.

    Start from the date the original decision was made, then count the weeks until the Tribunal made the decision and this will give you an approximate amount. Use a calendar to count the number of weeks, then times it by the above amount.

    Impossible to help further without knowing the exact details and dates.

    Hi Poppy,

    thanks for this, the original decision was made on 10/04/2019 and then the tribunal made a different decision on 29/10/2019.

    Hi @Ben2303. That makes it around 28 weeks. So 28 x £58.70 = £1643.60
    This is approximate though. Hope that helps.

    We can't work out exactly how many weeks because you will have to wait longer than the Tribunal decision date to receive your backdated money. Adrian has just worked out an approximate amount, as he's advised,  because no one can tell you the exact amount.

    Hi @Ben2303. I've said 28 weeks because there's 28 and 6 days between the two dates you've given. But as there'll still be a little while before they put it in payment, it could be a bit more than 28 weeks, so it just depends on when they pay you. As Poppy said, it's difficult to give an exact amount of weeks, but it should be at least 28 weeks worth.
    Hope that helps somewhat!

    Hi all, I have received the back payment from DWP. I presume I just need to wait for a letter now with my award details along with my first pay day going forward. 

    how do I check tho that i've been paid the correct amount of arrears???? 
  • JurphJurph Member Posts: 346 Pioneering
    @Ben2303 they're very rarely wrong.

    The letter will tell you how much backpay you've got and what dates it's paid between.

    You can work it out yourself but it's tricky. As Adrian explained, you need to work out how many weeks between the 2 dates there are, then times that by your weekly amount (this still may not be wholly correct as the rates changed in April)
  • Ben2303Ben2303 Member Posts: 24 Connected
    @Jurph

    thanks for your message. 

    I have not received no back payment letter from DWP. 
    They have told me when I spoke to them they don’t give letters out for appeals, but they will issue me an award letter which shows my entitlement. 

    Would it be any letter I got from the courts I would need to refer too?? 

    Certainly seems the only way to be certain is to do a manual calculation which is going to be tricky. 
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    It will be an award letter from DWP and this can take anything up to 8 weeks after a Tribunal win.

    Can anyone please assist with adding up dates and get a figure for the weeks as I’m struggling. 

    Apologies to come across dumb. 

    I think this is just where my mind is going round and round.

    The sums were done here but it's just a guide i'm afraid because it depends exactly how many weeks in total it will be up until they pay the backdated month. No one can tell you exactly how much you'll receive.

    So if I tell you the date they paid me then you will be able to give me an exact date ? :-) 
  • Ben2303Ben2303 Member Posts: 24 Connected
    I am slightly confused looking back at Adrians post again As seen he mentioned about there also being 6 days . 
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    The date of the original decision and the date they paid you and i'll try to help but it won't be exactly. May I ask why you're asking?

    Hi Poppy, 

    I am just curious I have been paid the correct amount of back payment. 

    The original decision was on 10/04/19 to say I would no longer be entitled to p.i.p, then I was awarded it on the 29/10/19. 

    My first payment was on 22/01/2020.

    how come it won’t be exactly as I’ve gave you all the dates ??? 
  • Ben2303Ben2303 Member Posts: 24 Connected
    @Adrian_Scope how did you get the 6 days when working out how many weeks ???? :smile:
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger

    When did you receive the backdated money? The 6 days that Adrian counted was because the date the original decision was made and the date the Tribunal made the decision was 28 weeks and 6 days.

    On your decision letter it should say when the backdated money is paid from and paid to, what are those dates?

    Thanks for answering this Poppy. I didn't get a notification of this tag. 

    @Ben2303: have you figured out the backdating and been able to verify that you got the correct amount?
