Hi all I’ve spoke to dwp on the phone this afternoon and they said a decision has been made and a letter sent out today 

she told me I have been awarded pip but she wouldn’t be able to see what rate until tomorrow. 

How long does the letter / back pay usually take ?

    I'm not sure how they knew if they can't see what the decision is. Once the decision's been made it takes 24 hours for it to show on all systems.
    If successfully awarded money is paid into your bank in 3-5 days after payment is made. Letters are usually received later than this.
    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.

    Call the pip automated line 0800 121 4433 in the morning and go through automated security. The automated system will the tell you your next payment date and amount. You can then work out what rate you have been awarded. I did this today after having my assessment 2 weeks ago and I found out I have been awarded yet it's only been 2 weeks and I haven't recieved award notice or any funds. Definitely worth a try. My turnaround has been amazing. Applied on 3rd Feb 2022 and already have my answer, hopefully this will spread a bit of hope!

    hey thank you for you reply. Your exactly the same as me. I applied on the 3rd of feb too! 
    I phoned on Tuesday and went to the automated message so I’ve definitely been awarded. 
    No letter or back payment as of yet though xx
