PIP payment schedule

Hey all,

Is there anywhere that I can review my PIP payment schedule online?

I expected to see it in addition to my Universal Credit payment on the .gov website but its not in the upcoming "payments" section.

I have already received back-payment but have not yet received an official 4-weekly payment schedule for PIP.

Many thanks in advance.

    Hi and welcome to the community 

    Your PIP will not show on your uc account they are completely separate 

    You cannot view pip payments online your award letter will detail you'd payment schedule it is paid 4 weekly in arrears

    Hi Janer,

    Thank you for the welcome and swift response.

    The award letter does list the weekly award amount but doesn't specify which day of the month it will be transacted.

    I will just keep checking my bank account and wait for the "surprise".

    Warm wishes and thanks again.

    The award letter will tell you exactly what award you have and the weekly amounts. You simply times those amounts by 4 to get the 4 weekly amount.
    The letter should also tell you which day of the week you will receive your money. The backdated money you received will be up until a certain date and your first payment will be 4 weeks after this. 
    Please have a closer look at the award letter.
    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 are absolutely right, Poppy and appreciated much!

    I have had an even closer look and the letter does state that the backdated award would be paid on the 3rd May so 4 weeks from then is 3rd June. Whoop, whoop!

    That doesn’t sound correct to me. It’s paid every 4 weeks on the same day of the week. 4 weeks from 3rd May would be 31st May. Seems like your payment day will be Tuesdays.

    I did a swift mental calculation on a month to month basis rather than 4-weekly despite writing 4-weekly, doh!

    Thanks, I'll update this thread when it does come through.

    Night, night.

    Going forward if you want to keep track of the payments, just mark it on the calendar. So when you get the next payment which we seem to think should be tomorrow, mark every 4 weeks from then.

    Absolutely, @Ross_Scope

    Thank you for your support, @MarkM88.

    The PIP payment has still not come through, although, I did receive my Universal Credit payment today which is not normally due until the 3rd (due to the upcoming Jubilee days).

    So now I am even more perplexed and unsure when I will receive the official schedule of payments from PIP. I will have to give them a call on Monday.

    Happy Long Weekend! (when it starts) :smiley:

    @FireTiger if you ring the automated pip number and go through the security questions, it should then give you the date of your next payment. Well it did for me anyway lol

    Thank you @bexter73, I am unsure as to why I didn't think of calling them today as an option. Again, doh! :blush: I had the bank holidays on my mind so thanks for the prompt.

    I called and the automated voice said I will be paid on 21st June.

    Thanks again, much appreciated :smile:

    Something isn't right there. Your decision letter will tell you exactly what date the money owed to you was paid from and to. You just work out 4 weeks from this date. It will also tell you the day of the week which your payment will be.
    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.

    Thanks @poppy123456

    The letter states I will be paid every 4 weeks in arrears on a Tuesday following the backdated payment paid on 3rd May. So from that, and what you have implied, I should have been paid Tuesday 31st May?

    I guess it will be Monday that I officially call them then, unless they are open tomorrow.

    Based on that information then yes it should have been paid on 31st May. They are not open now until Monday and 9am.

    Happy New Week!

    I called PIP and they said I was paid on 24th May. I checked my account and what do you know, it was there. Complete and utter oversight on my part - apologies.

    Thanks again for the support all.
