    Why do we have to chase for our money... Right they suppose to be doing it and exactly what is automatically that bullshyt... I don't like chasing money... If DWP like any DWP chase people for money overpayment right that example why should we chase for ours...
    If they don't pay I'm taking DWP t tribunal court for cause me a stress and that... They gonna pay out loads than what they owe...

    @son_of_boris I think for a lot of people it’s the anticipation too? It isn’t really about the money, I think it’s more feeling let down, left out and confused x

    @son_of_boris I just received my letter too! Which is identical to yours bar name and address 😊 maybe we’ll all get it at the same time. I think it’s awful how they’ve gone about it, “in due course” just doesn’t seem right x

    Great news. Due course is a bit hopeless. Could of put a date really. But I get my pip Monday so I hoping it goes in with that.

    But pip and cost of living never paid together.. they are separate that it... I'm getting **** off lol sorry they said get paid automatically we don't need to do anything once we didn't get it then they say fill in form missing payment really automatically my ****.... Because automatically means computer know who got pip DWP lied they never was automatically.... Know what I mean reason we get late because DWP looking from history of pip payment...paid all them and we only started this year that why we left out really automatically 😡 😡😡😡 everyone got it maybe just few that had pip this year got it.. really hate DWP

    It does seem like a lot of people who haven't yet received it were those that claimed on or before 25th May 2022 and didn't have their decision until after this date. Those that have already received it had their decision before the qualifying date.
    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.

    Your claim started before the 25th May so you do qualify. As i advised, it does seem like those that were awarded after 25th May haven't yet received the money. You will receive it because you're entitled to it, it's just no one can tell you when.

    At least I know that I’m not the only one who hasn’t yet received the £150. It’s now the 14th of October and I filled out the online form over a week ago. I’ve been getting PIP for some years now so I know I’m entitled to it. I haven’t heard back about it yet either
