I applied for PIP 9th feb. Had phone assessment 31st march. Received a text 12th april to say they had my report and i would recieve a letter with outcome within 8 weeks. A payment of £761.71 was put in my bank acc at midnight. The transaction details on statement is just a long number, nothing about where it came from. Only thing i.can think of is PIP. Have to wait a few hours till everywhere opens, its just bugging the life out of me lol

    Hi there 

    It isn't unusual to get payment before letter as they ars released at the same time and the bank transfer is quicker than post 

    You gave had a really quick turn around some members applied in Dec and are still waiting for assessment 

    Fingers crossed its a good result for you 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can help I will

    taking so long. Just glad its sorted now, phew🙂
