How long until award letter arrives after backpayment?

nddlbnddlb Member Posts: 6 Listener
Hi, I applied for P.I.P for the first time back in December, and had my assessment last month. Yesterday I woke up and they had put £1299 backpay into my account so I have obviously been awarded something, but I need the letter to apply for my bus pass, and I really want to know exactly what I'll be getting each month. So does anyone know how long after receiving the backpayment I'll get my award letter?

    Hi and welcome 

    Congratulations on the award 

    The letter should be on its way if you have had payment already this does happen quite a lot

    Can I ask how long it took for your back payment to come through? I'm still waiting on line but had the award letter. It has no date on it to when it will be paid.

    Thank you for the information. I'm coming up to day 12 but with easter, you can never know with these things. I live in Leicestershire and there jas been loads of investigations into DWP at the minute as well as the virus, so I'm not optimistic in receiving it any time soon.
