Can someone explain as I am sure I am entitled to the Cost of Living £150 Entitlement.

I put claim in for PIP in February 2022 and eventually it was approved in July and backdated to February 2022. Full rate mobility and daily living!

The qualifying date is 23rd May 2022. As I got a backdated payment for that week after it happened am I entitled to the 150 payment?

From what I have read elsewhere I am but yet to have received it.
Yes I have filled that form in now a few times and heard nothing back!

    You are entitled. It's not helpful filling out the missing payment form more than once. It does say on the missing payment page.. Do not report the same missing payment more than once. We will reply to you as soon as we can.
    When you do hear back the letter will only tell you what you already know.. you are entitled. You will receive the money in due course.
    Another member reported here today that they received their money today in their bank.
    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.
