    Hi,
    You may not receive the decision letter until at least the middle of next week. BACS payments take 3-5 working days to go into your bank, which is quicker than the post.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    You’ll just have to wait and see.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    It should hopefully go through @ryanshane :) As the others have said, it's quite common to receive the payment before the letter comes through due to the speed of the post. Does that make sense? 

    Just to let you know, I've moved your post into our PIP category, and renamed it.
