Received a letter asking for my bank details. I've not had a decision letter though. Is this normal?

I applied for PIP in May, had my assessment on 12 Aug and received a letter today asking for my bank details. I've not had a decision letter though.  Is this normal?  Sorry but I'm just a bit worried.  Thanks.

    Usually when you ring to start your claim they ask you for bank details. If you didn't give them then this is probably the reason they've wrote to you. If you haven't already, then i'd advise you to ring PIP.
    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.
