    Well hi all. Had my normal pip payment today and thought the £150 would go in with that......... But no still nothing so not got a clue when to expect it. Taking the mick tbh. 

    It will be paid as a separate payment, not with your PIP.

    Yes because PIP are not dealing with the payments.
    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.

    That's all great but I don't want a letter , the letter is just more drag the heels time,  that was exactly 2weeks ago I filled out the online missing payment section and no reply no acknowledgement or letter or nothing . By the time we get this it will be in with the 2nd half of the COL payment (324) which is due in 3weeks ish.  I hope they don't botch that like they've botched this....  I see we are all getting the £66 fuel payment already so that's good,  we got our Eon voucher in last week so happy days , 1st week of each month until March......

    Can't see it being anytime soon, I think a timescale of a payment would reduce the stress it's causing people.

    Agreed although at least you have some reassurance they are working their way through claims, next step is payment.

    The letter will only tell you that you're entitled to it anyway, which you know that anyway. It doesn't tell you when you will receive it.

    I haven't received it either, I filled in the form about week and half ago, haven't received any letter from em.

    I rang originally asking if I was eligible as I applied end of April. But didn't receive anything until August, which was backdated. They assured me that i was definitely eligible and should receive it. Still waiting.....

    They'd want payment from me if I owed them money instantly.
