    Hi there 

    Congratulations and thanks for sharing ,  you will get back pay to the date you first applied for PIP 

    As to how long it will take for payment is a guess but it doesnt normally take that long if its DWP decision 

    The payment dates will be in line with when you applied 

    What was the award you have been given ?

    No problem 

    You may find the money is in your account before you get the letter 

    But the letter will detail your 4 weekly payments and your back pay
