Hi everyone, my bank app says £834.64 will go into my account on Tuesday 6th December, I know I have been awarded PIP due to a text message but no clue what the award is made up of due to not having received the letter yet. I've tried to work it out but none of the rates would add up to the payment amount I listed above, which leads me to think maybe it's a backdated payment as I first made my claim on Tuesday 11th October, perhaps it's an odd number due to it not being a full week but I've got no clue, maybe someone on here has an insight

    That's an extremely quick timescale! This would be 7 weeks up until 29th Nov and Enhanced daily living, standard mobility would be £817.95 based on 7 weeks.
    Either way, it's still only ever going to be a complete guess. You can either wait for the decision letter or ring and ask them Monday morning what your award is and they will tell you.
    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.

    I was surprised myself when I saw how quick it took! I didn't believe it at first I thought someone must be trying to scam me by sending fake texts but no it was real, I know I am one of the luckier ones, I know my brother in law had about 13 months before he got the reward and even then it was the wrong level... Enhanced daily living and standard mobility is what I was expecting so I'm glad if that's the case thank you!
