Hi, my name is CB_1985!

Hello there, I was hoping for help!

I put in a pip claim on 24/05/22 and 16/08/22 have been approved by text saying a payment had been made and I will get a letter withing 2 weeks. Today, there was £733.36 put into my account by DWP. I was expecting to get the enhanced daily living and at least standard mobility. Can anyone help what this figure may be? It doesn't add up to anything!

Thanks in advance.

    It will either be standard daily living or Enhanced mobility. It will depend when the money they owed you was paid up until.
    You can either ring them to ask or wait until the decision letter arrives. There's also an automated payment line and it will tell you how much your next payment is. Helplione number is 0800 121 4433 and choose option 6. You should be able to work out what your award is from that payment.

    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.
