Hey new to pip applied in January and been accepted this month, no letter yet but got paid 288 into my account, been told it gets backdated from when you applied so 288 seems a tad low for 5 months of backdated pay, I’m guessing 288 is my monthly amount and backdated comes later.. well I hope so anyway, anyone know more about this?  Thank you

    You'll have to wait for the letter.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Even if it was just low mobility that it too low for 5 months but it's also a weird amount to be a 4 weekly payment. Are you certain the money was from PIP?
    I hope you get the letter soon so you can know for sure <3

    We can only guess why the payment was so low. Though when claiming PIP, part of the criteria is you need to have had the conditions for at least 3 months. Even if this did apply here, the amount you received seems low.
    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.
