ive been on pip for 4 yrs no standard daily living and enhanced mobilty.
i recently had my pip reassessment letter, and have sent all medical documents and form back before the date 20th january.
my pip has always been £479 per month and is due tomorrow.
ive checked my bank this morning for upcoming payments,  and pip has paid £595 into my bank instead of £479.
Does anyone have a clue why. Deep down inside im wondering have they made a desicion and changed my payment or if its a mistake or wether its a final payment and im no longer entitled to pip what do i do any suggestions

    Hi Therre @ollieandduke, I am one of the community champions, sounds like they have looked into your claim and reassessed you, I would suggest giving the team at DWP a call and they will be able to advise you on why you have received that amount - hope this helps! Tom
