We recently won pip at tribunal for my son who has ASD, I told tax credits and they've added the disabled child element to the payments but said it would take a while to for them to sort out a backdated payment for the last tax year as his claim started from June 2021, does anyone know how long this takes

    @leanne8530 There is no fixed timescale but I’d give it up to 6 weeks. Just to check, did your son only get awarded standard rate DL and not enhanced?

    He got standard rate for daily living and standard rate for mobility

    Okay thanks for that, was just checking as if he got the enhanced rate another element is added. As I have advised please give up to 6 weeks although they do usually process these things relatively quickly, it’s only a small team. 

    Also, you may get a few one off payments. This is so they can get your payments back on track with the new element added

    Hello, 
    I have received tribunal decision on friday (Online followed by hearing) and awarded 8 points on daily living components. The decision notice says '' ....is entitled to the daily living component at the standard
    rate from 11/11/2021 to 10/11/2024''. Please note, I submitted pip app. on Nov 2021. 
    I want to find out more clarification about the end date please. Whether my claim is going to end on 10/11/2024 ? I live in Scotland. This is my first post. Not sure i am on correct group/trail .. 
    Many thanks 
    MMR

    The letter should also say that your award will be reviewed after xx date. 
    Your current award will end on 10/11/2024 unless renewed.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Many thanks Calcotti for your reply. I assume so. The tribunal letter didn't say anything about review.

    Sorry. Please ignore my last reply, I completely overlooked that you referred to a tribunal decision (despite that being clear in your post!). I put it down to a sleepy afternoon watching the rain out of the window.

    Your award will end on the date stated. However before that date (usually about three months before the end date) you should get a letter from DWP reminding you the award will end and advising you that if you want to continue to receive PIP you will need to make a new application.

    Given how long PIP applications take to process you may wish to contact them slightly sooner than that.
