3 weeks PIP ?

Hi people. My first post.
I successfully recently reapplied for PIP and received an initial 8 weeks money but today, I received 3 weeks. I'm wondering if anyone else received any money early today? I'm going to wait to see if I get another week next Friday but i was told I'd be getting it 3 weeks in arrears.

Bit strange

Cheers in advance for any replies

    Hi @Phatjaxx

    Welcome to Scope. You will find such knowledge here along with support and friendships. 
    I also receive PIP and was awarded for five years. I currently receive payment every four weeks. I would suggest you give them a ring and ask them to explain. Also, if you register for a GATEWAY ID on the DWP website you can track all your payments (paid and yet to be paid). It takes five mins to do and is really informative. You can even do a live chat with one of the advisers, they are really helpful
    Have a wonderful sunny day 
    Take care
