    If multiple members of a household are receiving PIP/DLA/AA will they receive a payment each?

    I am an appointee for my mother (who receives AA), and my child (receives DLA) and I receive PIP. Will we receive the payment each or as it is all paid into my account, will we only receive one?

    @Fae yes as it's per claim.

    All three payments will go into your bank.

    I’ve been wondering the same as I claim pip for myself and I receive DLA for my little boy. 
    On checking mh bank this morning I’ve received £150 but without trying to sound greedy I thought I would receive that for each of our claims .

    Yes you will each receive it but as you haven't received both at the same time, the other payment will be paid on a different day. They don't pay everyone on the same 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.

    It’s also worth noting that Saturday isn’t a working day and very few banks release payments on a Saturday, mine certainly doesn’t. Your payment may have been sent but might be released Tuesday.

    I’m with Monzo . My payment is due to clear Monday . But I can see it there pending today

    Maybe you will see it Monday then for Tuesday, I can’t see payments pending. Once you have received it do come back and let us know as other members are wondering the same as you.

    Sorry don’t think I have explained properly . 
    The payment is due to clear Monday . 
    But if you are with Monzo you can opt to receive the day before (Sunday at 4pm) 
    or wait until it “officially clears” in your account on Monday . 
    You can see pending payment in your account . 
    If anyone else is with Monzo they will understand what I mean. 
    So they payment will be available in my account Monday

    I understand, thanks. I was saying when you receive your second £150 cost of living payment come back and let us know as many other members are worried about it. :)

    I think bg844 was talking about the other £150 payment.

    Why would you do that because you haven't receive your money yet? There's very few people who have received it at the moment. You will receive payment anytime up to beginning of October. The Government did announce it would be anytime from 20th September.

    If the award you now have had a retrospective start date that was before 25th May you will qualify for £150 payment.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Mine is in "pending" state in my bank account (HSBC) - to be paid tomorrow (29th).  I don`t know which "algorithm" they use, but my first name starts with "A", my surname with "C", my NI No "W" and my shoes are size 9 :D

    I got the £150 yesterday, Bought a couple of calor gas bottles with it. The £400 per household will go into my EDF account, lose out on the other payment as I'm on legacy benefits. Have been told since 2015 I'm entitled too income related ESA, But they're keeping me on contribution,the letter states contribution and income.
