Update on PIP
Hi all just an update on my Pip. As the people will know that have seen/read my posts I won my appeal and have constantly been in touch with both the HMCTS and the dwp. Finally I got my corrected notice back from the HMCTS after 3weeks so I contacted the dwp 2/3 days later to see if they had received it and asked what I should do next. The first person I spoke to at the dwp told me that nothing was showing on his screen and that i needed to allow 5 weeks/28 days +1week. I then rang again the next day and was told they had all the relevant paperwork/documentation and all that was needed now was for someone to act upon it. I was then told to give them 2 weeks and if I haven't heard anything to call them back. Later that day I got a call from an 0800 number but I missed the call so I then googled it to find out it was a dwp number that is apparantely allocated to someone working from home with the dwp. I then contacted the dwp again on the PIP number to see if it was them and they couldn't inform me of anyone trying to ring me from such a number. Will be on the phone again Monday to see if I can be enlightened and also to find out when I will actually get a letter from them stating what and when I will receive my payments.
