Decision maker phone call

sleepygirlxoxsleepygirlxox Member Posts: 3 Listener
Hi, I applied on the 30th June 2020 for pip. I’ve gone through the assessments which I still scored 0 points. I then did a MR and still scored 0 points. I applied to go to a tribunal and 4 weeks after DWP called me (5 days ago) and went through some questions with me and has now awarded me enhanced mobility payments part of pip. She said the backdated money will be 7-10 days. Has anyone had any experience of this? I still have no decision letter or payments.

    Yes, it does happen occasionally though not very common.

    You should get your letter and backpay soon.  The actual payments will take a bit longer to start but that will also be on the letter.

    It's not common for the DWP to contact you and change the award between MR & tribunal - but it does happen sometimes.  It's not a scam if that's what were wondering.

    You'll receive a letter soon, stating how much you'll be paid and when the start date will be.  It'll then be every 4 weeks on the same day after that.

    The backpay usually arrives in your bank before any letters or regular payments.

    It does happen and I think has been happening more often (but still unusual).
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    So if 7-10 days is between Wednesday and Saturday this week coming, am I right in saying to expect the money any day? Any idea what I could be expecting

    Hi and welcome 

    If they said 7 -10 days then hopefully it will be correct 

    You should get back to start date if your claim so work out the number of weeks and times it by weekly enhanced rate of £62.25
