    If you started your PIP claim no later than 25th May then it’s likely to be the CoL payment. 
    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.

    Any money owed will be paid into your bank 3-5 working days after payment was sent.

    You said you applied in April, so if you've been awarded they will owe you money from the date you rang to start your claim. (unless you're transferring from DLA)
    Way does that mean after payment was sent
    Once a decision is made they usually pay you any money that's owed, payments are made by BACS which take 3-5 working days to go into your bank. No one can tell you when you will receive the money that's owed because we don't know when payment was made. You can ring PIP to ask and they'll tell you when to expect the money in your bank.
    The £150 you received is likely to be the CoL payment.

    Yes that's true i first called to get ball rolling in April that's when they took all my details and I'm not transferring from dla so should i be entitled to backdated from my first call?

    Yes, providing you had the conditions for at least 3 months.
