Hi there everyone,I’m new to this so I will be brief,I have been waiting just short of two years for a pip decision,Had a tribunal by phone with judge and two Drs,Due to the current situation,Anyway I received a letter from courts saying the decision was approved and I should get Standard daily living from the 26/06/2018,will I get this backdated and does anyone know how much I will get please,I’m useless at these things sorry,The DWP sent a letter a few days ago for bank details and if I have been in hospital,which I have in 2018 for 28 days will this affect anything,Thank you in advance everyone?

    Hi @knightie - Welcome to the community, & thank you for joining. I'm sorry to read you had such a long wait for your tribunal, but pleased you now have an award for the daily living component. Asking for bank details, hospital stays, etc. is standard procedure, & nothing to worry about. Normally PIP stops after you have been in hospital for 28+ days (then starts again when you come out), so hopefully this will not affect your payment. Yes, your money will be backdated. The amount for PIP awards goes up a little each April, & the standard rate for the daily living component is currently £59.70 per week (last year it was £58.70). Hope this helps, & congratulations! :)

    Hi @knightie, yes this can happen as part of an auditing process. I really hope you don't have to wait much longer!

    Thank you for the reply ?So it’s pretty normal then,When I rang they weren’t very helpful,Just said “It’s with a case manager just checking the dates” I’m just hoping it’s over now as this was one of the most stressful times of my life,And I’ve had a few ??.Going of what everyone else has been saying it probably could still be a good few months away yet to be settled I think,Once again thanks for helping ?
