    My £150 was also in my account this morning. I filled out the form as soon as it was made available so what’s that, 3 weeks??

    I've spoke to pip today and they confirned mine was sent and due in my account Monday. There's another screen they can see any payments sent or made for any benefits. Judging from this I bet most people will be paid next week so on average 2-3 weeks from when you reported a missed payment, hope this helps people with a time scale. Glad you got yours @Bignig I hope it helps :)

    Great news finally @Awiddup13
    The vast majority of banks do not pay weekends (mine doesn’t) so it may be good for other members to hear for Monday.

    Yeah my Barclays does but others won't but looks like most will get it next week, let's hope the next one on the 8th is easier. I'm moving out of temporary accommodation/hotel so will all fit in nicely for me I think :)

    Filling out the form more than once isn't helpful. It's spefically states on the Gov.uk website not to fill out the form more than once. Doing this can cause confusion and delays.
    You already know you're entitled to it so receiving the letter isn't going to give you anymore information than you already know.
    Various members have already posted that they've received it now so you will likely be one of them in due course.
    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.

    There’s no phone number that you can ring. There’s no point ringing PIP because the payments have nothing to do with those. 
    I’m not surprised you haven’t had a letter because you’ve filled out the missing payment form 3 times. It does tell you not to fill it out more than once. Even if you did receive a letter it’s not going to tell you anymore than you already know.. that you’re entitled to the payment.
    All you can do is wait and you will receive the money.

    It's now October 30th. STILL no payment and despite filling in the missing payment form 27 DAYS ago, they haven't even sent me a letter or let me know what's happening. Is anyone else still waiting? My first PIP payment came in June but was backdated to January so as far as I'm aware I am eligible. It's getting beyond a joke now.

    There's sevral other threads here related to the same thing. You are not the only person to still be waiting. Some received a letter and some didn't. However, the letters are rather pointless because it will only tell you what you already know "that you're entitled to it" it then says "you will receive the money in due course"
    There are other members here who started to receive it last week after filling out the missing payment form. There's no phone number to ring and you've done all you can. Now you need to wait for the money, which will hopefully be paid soon.
