    Hi @smokeyjoey - Your PIP payments will continue. From the governments website, 'where awards are due to expire, we will be extending end-dates so that claimants continue to receive financial support at their current rate during this period.'
    Hope this helps. :)

    @kass What was the decision after your assessment if you were not given any award then that is why the payments have stooped. The extension is for people who award is due to expire but no reassessment has taken place but in your case you have had an assessment and a decision 
  • kasskass Member Posts: 65 Connected
    Thank for relying

      yes no award and had my assessment on the 6th march before lockdown.....I have put in mantroy reconstruction letter last week

    Was this following a paper hearing?
  • paulb123paulb123 Member Posts: 14 Listener
    @mikehughescq I already won my first assessment a year ago for mobility but I appealed for a higher rate and daily living I've been waiting for a hearing a year and a half but a letter come today of the judge sayn has made a provisional decision to give me mobility and give me 8 points for daily living until 2020 but it says the dwp av 28 days to get back to has decision he made he sed he made it just looking at my papers so was just wondering if its happened to any 1 else n if it's likely I should win now the judge made a provisional  decision

    As per my post on your other thread...

    This IS the process at present.

    You have won unless you or DWP object. In that case you gets second bite of the cherry via a telephone hearing.

    kass has really thrown me, am I likely to lose my money on 6th june? no assessment or appointment has happened uptil now? I was sent pip form when restrictions were being put in place for corona
  • paulb123paulb123 Member Posts: 14 Listener
    Thank @mikehughescq it says its from August 2018 to 2022 so of a do win my daily living should that get back dated from then thank u
  • kasskass Member Posts: 65 Connected
    If a pip ends on 23rd april 2020 and you get the decision letter saying your money going to stop from that date and its payed in arrears is that the last payment i would get  or was I due another in May as i only got 3 weeks  money for my pip and 2 week SDP 

    Thanks 


  • kasskass Member Posts: 65 Connected
    Sorry my end date for pip was the 2nd may 2020 not April 23 so can anyone tell me why did DWP only pay me April and not up to the 2nd may should have got over £200 but only got £174 is this right 

    Thanks

    Thanks

    Great news, thanks for the update. It can take between 2-8 weeks for backdated money to be paid and about the same time to put an award into payment. Although this is just a guide, there's really no timescales.

    Thank you for the update @kass - whether you get your backdated money before, or after Christmas, I'm sure it will be most welcome nonetheless. Congratulations! :)
