PIP and pension credit
Last Friday 15th June I received a letter to say I would be getting PIP from July 11th 2018. I have both components at standard rate, which has now made me £150.00 worse off than when I was on DLA. I ha e just looked at my bank account and my Pension Credit has stopped, even though the PIP doesn’t start until 11/07/18. Is this correct or should I still be getting it. Hope you can help me as this is so very worrying.
