Hi everyone.

Very happy to say that I got my PIP back pay today!!
I sent my form in on 28th June, had my interview on 17th August and today the payment went into my bank.
Very surprised how fast it has all gone as I was expecting a long wait.
Super happy I got both care & mobility on my first time claim.

Ty to everyone who helped

    Just shocked how fast it was, has taken just under 6 weeks in total.
    I was expecting it to take much longer

    Really over the moon with the result.
    the letter hasn’t come yet but the back pay has gone into my account from PIP so I assume it’s been granted

    Luchia do you mind me asking did you receive a letter first asking if you been in hospital prison or abroad first and if so how long after this did you get backdated pay??

    They back dated it to the day I started claim.
    only thing I had to fill in was the “How your disability affects you” I had my phone assessment on 17th of august and got my back pay today.
    Never got a letter asking if I had been in prison etc(I haven’t)

    They only ask this after a Tribunal win because Tribunal decisions can take many many months and DWP wouldn't know what's happened in all those months. For just the usual claim this way they don't ask those questions. Once the decision is made they pay backdated money owed, which is perfectly normal to receive payment in your bank before any decision's been made.

    I just had some great news!
    I called PIP just to double check and they said my award is for 3 years instead of 2 years
