    Hi Krissy71,
    if I am correct you will get paid from the date you first applied for PIP and if my math is also correct the amount should be 1,816.80 as of February 2021.
    I hope this may be the answer you were looking for and I hope it helps you.

    That doesn't seem right as I assumed it was 605 a month and my claim starts on 11 Sept 20 20 sorry this is confusing

    PIP is paid every 4 weeks, not by the calendar month, if you were unaware.  It is paid in arrears.

    I agree the maths seems wrong from the other post though, I work it out as 5 payment days by next week.  So roughly £3,000.  You will get a letter stating exactly how much backpay you're owed though.

    If you really want to know and haven't received the letter or a payment yet, give them a call and ask if they can tell you how much the payment is for that they have issued / or will be issuing and they should be able to help. 

    I know when my mum rang for her decision they were more than happy to give her the exact figure over the telephone.

    11th September to 19th February is 23 weeks at £151.40/week = £3,482.20. The actual payment you receive will depend on where they have drawn the line between the arrears payment and the start of the four week period for which you will get your first regularly 4 weekly payment of £605.60.

    The payment will probably arrive before the letter. Have you checked you bank account?

    Yes but no payment, I'm guessing because of the weekend, would that be my backdated payment as you stated above as I have asked someone on the Facebook group and they told me £1850 would be my backpay sorry for all the questions I'm just so confused

    As per my earlier post I made it 23 weeks at £151.40/week = £3,482.20 but the actual amount will depend on the date they have drawn the line between the arrears payment and the ongoing payment.
