Late CoL payment - when?

Hello. Does anyone have any experience of how long it took to get CoL payment (£150 for PIP) after submitting form on gov. website due to not receiving it, even though eligible? I know it's a waiting game, but thought I'd ask. Ta.

    Some waited a few weeks. I have no idea if there's anyone else still waiting but no one else has mentioned it in the past week or so.
    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.

    Hi L_Volunteer, yes thank you. I knew it'd be a waiting game, I just wondered if anyone had experience of submitting the online form when you've not received you CoL payment. Even an acknowledgement text or email once submitted would've been helpful. I'll just be patient. Thank you.

    I believe we've heard from other members who submitted the form, didn't hear back, and then got the payment @MrBrightside. I think others received some sort of acknowledgement that they were eligible for the payment, and would receive it at some point. I realise that's not a very helpful answer!

    Hi Tori, I didn't receive an acknowledgement but I did receive the payment today, so took just over a week from submission of the form. Thanks.

    Oh no, that's frustrating @durhamjaide2001. At least that also means that no one is alone though  :)
