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.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

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

    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????

    @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)

    @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.

    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.
