    There are others who haven’t received it yet. People have been receiving it throughout the morning so there’s plenty of time left today for you to still receive it. 
    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.

    Thank you! I would leave it until the end of next week. If you haven't received it then you can report a missing payment.

    That's not correct. The £150 is paid as a separate payment. I had mine a couple of days ago and my PIP isn't due for another week.

    @Qasimo of course this potentially could happen but it’s administered completely separate to normal payments hence the delay. I hope you get it very soon.

    Of course there's nothing stopping it being paid at the same time as your PIP but it will come as a separate payment with DWP CoL next to it.

    If you don't receive it by the end of this week there's a missing payment form you will be able to use to report a missing payment. Yes, you're entitled to it but no doubt there will be some people that they miss, which is what the form will be for.
