    @Rean22 Hello and welcome to the community I am a community champion. I'm no expert but having read other peoples experiences of this matter, I would agree this is a long time to not have received any payment. Unfortunately the only way to get this resolved is for your friend to contact the PIP helpline and be quite insistent that they look at the progress of her case and advise when payments will commence. I hope your friend gets this resolved

    Thanks @steve51 for the tag.

    Hi and welcome,

    You say your friend is currently in hospital, may I ask how long they have been there? 

    Also what were they awarded from the Tribunal please? 

    Once you’ve answered those questions I’ll be able to help you further.
