    Hi and welcome 

    Not certain but it would suggest you have been given a higher award 

    I presume you haven't had an assessment so this would suggest a paper based assessment has taken place 

    All you can do is ring them or wait for award letter

    Hello @ashxo and welcome to the community, glad you've joined us. 

    I have moved your discussion over to our PIP category :) 

    I think it might be a good idea to call DWP on Monday to ask about this, and hopefully they will be able to put your mind at ease.

    £151.40 would be a weekly amount for an award of enhanced rate both components. However not sure why they would have paid you a one week amount. 
    £147.25 would be 5 weeks of the difference between standard and enhanced rate Daily Living, so could be that.
    You should get a decision letter shortly so will know.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hi @ashxo - & welcome to the community. Enhanced rate for both components is £89.15 (daily living) & £62.25 (mobility) which comes to £151.40 which does indeed suggest your award has increased. Great news for you. :)

    @ashxo, have you contacted the DWP, these are the best people to answer your questions about odd payments into your account. Phone them and they will tell you what the payment is all about .Good luck and let the community know how you get on.
