Text confirming receipt of PIP

Hey everyone (again 😬),

I’ve seen a few people commenting here that they received a text to say that their PIP claim was successful. Is this a universal thing that everyone who is successful receives now, or are there still some people who are successful with their claim but don’t receive the text? 

The text/no text situation is just one more thing adding to my anxiety and as with my previous question I suppose I’m just looking for a little reassurance!

(I’m sorry for starting another discussion so soon after the last one, but I wasn’t sure how much traction a second question on my first thread would get.)

Thanks for any help you can give, you’re all  amazing!

    As far as I know @LittleWish not everyone receives a text, and this has no impact on their success with their PIP claim. 

    Does that makes sense? :) 

    If you've still got questions, please don't be afraid to ask, we'll be here to help as much as we can.

    It seems as though texts of an award are more likely for those that are claiming for the first time, rather than reviews. I've not heard of anyone receiving a text if there's a refusal.
    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.

    Hey all, to not leave the thread open ended (I hate when that happens!) I received a significant (to me anyway!) back payment into my account this morning, but no text. I’ll update when my letter arrives.
