PIP allowed.

edited August 2020 in PIP, DLA, and AA
I just have a question about my PIP was allowed at tribunal, 8 points standard daily living. Since the corona period I could cope financially as electricity was postponed, and interest was not charged by my bank. I did also use foodbanks
It has been tight and for a year, with increasing and accumulative charges for being overdrawn. The overdraft charges are set to increase this month in the U.K and I am also gaining electricity charges. My housing benefit was reduced this month as I had a short discretionary assistance there.
Could I ask, who can I contact to ask when this award comes through as it really is needed and at this time, specifically. I do not need to have it sucked up by overdraft charges if they accrue within the 6-8 weeks?

Thank You
