edited March 20 in PIP, DLA and AA
I have just received notification from the Court, following a P.I.P appeal tribunal hearing, that My P.I.P claim has been granted.
I have had a phone call from P.I.P to say they are putting a letter in the Post to Me, about Payability.
What does that mean please ?
Someone suggested I have to tell Them I`m not in Prison, or Hospital, or something ?
If that is all, why didn`t They just ask Me when They Phoned ?
Very stressful Time, especially as I have been waiting since April last Year for this to be sorted, & My payments to be reinstated.

    @polarbearmike hi ya and welcome to the forum,  looks like you won your award and will get payments. Some good news for you.
  • polarbearmikepolarbearmike Member Posts: 4 Listener
    That`s what I thought too.
    Until I was told about a letter in Post to Me about Payability, which has only achieved severe anxiety attacks, as I don`t know what that is &/or means ?

    It might be pay dates and the amount @polarbearmike
  • polarbearmikepolarbearmike Member Posts: 4 Listener
    No.
    I asked if they had all the information & She said yes, this was NOT about that.
    She said She would not discuss it & would put a letter in Post about PAYABILITY.
    Does ANYONE know what this is please ?
    I am very worried & anxious AGAIN !

    Hi and welcome 

    I am sure it will just be details of your payments the amounts and even they will be 

    You may even find you get a payment before you even get the letter which does happen in some cases 

    They do call or write yo check bank details and hospital and prisinnudyally before payment is made so it could also be this 

    They wouldn't have asked when you called asvthid wouldn't gave been the correct person to ask those questions 

    Relax you have won so the stress is over they do have time to request a statement of reasons the same as you so payment doesnt always happen until this period has lapsed 

    They dont very often ask for it though

    It is NOT about payments, amounts, or Dates, as I have already said.
    Please, if ANYBODY knows what this PAYABILITY letter is, then tell Me.
    I do NOT want guesses &/or maybe`s!

    You did not state you knew the pay dates and amounts in your post 

    We are all only trying to help 

    But as we are not the DWP we can only guess 

    It isnt necessary to shout at people here trying to help by using capitals 

    Hope you find the answer 

    I will make no further comments as you obviously dont appreciate any HELP or time people put into replying

    Hello @polarbearmike

    Welcome to the community, glad you've joined us. Congratulations on winning your award, that's fantastic news. 

    Payability is a term I have to admit I haven't seen mentioned in relation to PIP letters before, however I assume they must be a fairly common thing. 

    As mentioned previously, we can only guess as to the meaning of the letter but given the word used to describe the letter (payability) I would guess that it is something to do with your payments. I doubt it will be anything to worry about, given you have already won your award, 

    Users on the community are here to help you and we all have your best interests at heart, and while I accept that this is a stressful time for you and you've waited a long time for this, using capital letters while addressing other members may be interpreted by some as being dismissive of their help and advice. Words on an online forum can be hard to interpret, so please ensure you remain respectful at all times and speak to others with the right tone.

    It is absolutely routine that when PIP is awarded for a past period DWP need to check that, as well as being entitled, payability is possible. This is because there are many circumstances in which a person may have an award and yet not get payment e.g. prison, hospital etc. Nothing to stress about at all but they need the responses in writing so they can go check any dates which are given and also have an audit trail. 

    Once the info is provided and verified then payment is made.
