    PIP will be payable from the date you first rang DWP to start the claim. You will be paid an arrears payment and will then receive 4 weekly payments.

    You will likely see a payment in your bank account prior to receiving the decision letter. The letter will give you details of the award and how your payments have been calculated it.

    Welcome to the community @qasimo :) Thank you for joining. It's great to have you with us! 

    It can all be a bit confusing, can't it? 

    We've had more members mentioning receiving texts from the DWP recently with updates about their claim, but it seems to be a reasonably new thing. I'd hope that if they sent a text saying your claim was successful, then you would indeed have a PIP award. Either way, you'll just need to wait for the decision letter to come through to see what you've been awarded. I hope it doesn't take too long to arrive!
    I'm deaf person anyone actually any idea how much do deaf people get really??
    As PIP isn't awarded based on what diagnosis the person has, the level of award varies, even among people who have the same diagnosis. It'll therefore depend on what ways your hearing loss affects you. RNID have a little bit of information about PIP and hearing loss.

    If you're not happy with the level of award you've received, you can challenge the decision once the decision letter has arrived.

    @Tori_Scope yea I rang them it is automated the number I rang was 0800 1214433 something like that... It say I get £460 pllus that was it.... But I applied pip on end of February 2022.. now I'm even more confuse cause what about back payment? Like on day I applied to August is that 6 month for £460 or so?? Love this scope it really do have proper information where you can't find it elsewhere.. now need to wait for decision letter to arrive... Now it mean I'm getting pip awesome... So does it mean £460 month for 6 month mean I should get £2700 right? That coming first innit?

    The automated payment line will not tell you what your backdated money will be. It will tell you what your first 4 weekly payment will be. A 4 weekly payment of £467 would be an award of Enhanced daily living and standard mobility.
    To know exactly what the award is and how much will be going into your bank you will need to ring that number you rang and speak to an advisor.

    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.

    Hi @Qasimo:) Welcome to the Scope online community! I think the text means you have been awarded PIP. Usually PIP is backdated to the date when you make your claim. You will find out all the details in the letter. I hope you receive the decision letter soon!

    Payments usually arrive before the letter.

    Payment will go into your bank 3-5 working days after it’s paid. Letter will be a couple of weeks as suggested in the text.

    In my experience.. Ring ask for pip1 form fill it yourself send back few week they send pip2 form don't do it yourself go Citizens advice bureau let them fill in cause if you actually do it on your own chance are you won't get it as they think it all fake etc so citizen advice bureau they sign their own name etc so dwp believe them more so then send them back and wait you the get how disability affect you form that maybe from pip2 form so send that wait long wait then assessment on phone is a specialist doctor but make sure your records on GP and hospital record are correct and updated so doctor on phone talk tell them what you having problem with then wait long long long wait then on 6th month you get text by the way dwp always text you update about your case then finall

    Ringing to ask for the PIP1 form to be sent to you rather than be filled out over the phone, only delays the process of that stage. By the time you receive that form, return it back to them, that's a few weeks at least. Once they receive that form back they will then send the PIP2, which can take another couple of weeks.
    When you ring to start your claim the PIP1 form can be completed over the phone, which is a much faster process. Once that is done they then send you the PIP2.

    There's no reason why DWP decision maker wouldn't believe an advice agency over a claimant filling out their own forms. Lots of people have no choice but to fill out their own forms because there's no advice agency local to them. It doesn't mean they have less chance of being successfully awarded. Lots of people are awarded successfully after filling out their own forms.
