I have been asked to provide identification does that mean I will be paid PIP ?

Hi, I have been asked to send off identification which I have and have now had them posted back … it said it needed this to be able to make payments … does this mean I have been awarded PIP ?

    I don't think anyone here can specifically answer your question. They may just be asking for ID for other reasons.
    They've been sending text messages for a few months to those that have been awarded, so if you haven't received one of those then there may not have been a decision made on that claim yet.
    To know for certain you'll need to contact PIP. 0800 121 4433

    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.
