    PIP is only paid 4 weekly, i'm not aware of payments being made fortnightly.

    Best I could find was a FOI reply which was pretty definite that PIP is only paid 4 weekly.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hi there 

    As advised PIP only paid 4 weekly, but maybe you could have it paid into a different account and then set up a  transfer weekly to your normal account if this would help

    Best wishes take care

    All benefits can have alternative payment arrangements (with the honourable exception of UC so far). It’s wholly discretionary so you have to both make the case and accept that there’s no formal right of appeal (although you could do a JR I guess). 

    So, yes you could, but not just because you ask. There has to be a specific and compelling reason for the change.
