Hi all,

I was wondering if I am eligible for the £150 payment. I was awarded PIP on the 4th August which was backdated from April 28th 2022. I’m confused by this as I have not received any payment as of yet so I’m wondering if I’ll get it or not. Could anyone shed some news on this? 

Thanks

    Yes, you qualify. I expect the payments to those who qualify as a result if backdated awards may be the last to be picked up. If you don’t get the £150 by the end of the first week of October you could report a missing payment

    Thanks everyone! I didn’t think I would have been entitled to anything but happy that I am now.

    Still no got the £150 payment as of yet. I did ring the Dwp and they told me to fill in an online form out and if I don’t hear anything back in 2 weeks I’m to ring them back. Also they did confirm I am entitled to it:

    Hi @User2022 I’m in a similar situation. I applied back in April and was approved in August & still haven’t received anything! I’ve filled in the online form but hoping will receive or hear something soon 🤞🏼

    Aww I’m glad you have had your Pip sorted out and awarded! I was hoping for it to be in this week but looks like another few weeks will have to wait. Hopefully they sort it out soon.

    Still no luck in the £150 payment. I did ring DWP the otherday and they said it will take longer than 2 weeks for them to even look at my missed payment form.

    I have no idea how they knew that because PIP are not dealing with the payments. When you ring DWP you are speaking to someone from a call centre, not from DWP itself.

    That’s what I was thinking. I filled the form in 2 weeks ago gone Thursday and still have not heard anything back yet… I just don’t know what to do if im honest or who to ring.

    I'm sorry to hear this @User2022 from reading the forum today it seems you're not the only one who hasn't heard back after a few weeks. 

    It's difficult to know what to suggest, because I'm sure a lot of people will want to ring, which will mean a long wait as the phone lines will be busy. I would hope there's an automated message at least or a separate line for CoL enquiries. 

    Perhaps if you feel able to, give them a ring on Monday and I hope you'll be able to get some clarity on these delays! 

    In the meantime, we're all here if you need to vent :)
