When a DWP benefit payment is described as "issued" does that mean it's actually been sent?
I am due a payment of PIP arrears that the DWP say was "issued" on Tuesday of this week. Yet the payment has not arrived in my bank and a BACs payment should only take 2 working days? I called DWP to check up on it and they said my payment will reach me on Tuesday 16th Feb, even though it was issued on Tuesday 9th Feb. Eh? The DWP guy then said that his screen shows the payment will arrive on Monday 15th Feb. I am with a normal high street bank that processes payments in the normal way. Sooooo confused!
