Backdate payments

Posted , 5 users are following.

Just wondering how long it took for other people to receive there back date payments? Im due my frist payment on the 27th of this month and was told what my back date payment was and how far back its being backdated but im unsure weather ill get my back date payment before my frist payment or if it will come into my account on the same day. They made the decision on the 6th October.

    I would think all payments will go in together, I am still waiting my decision and because I am on DLA and that was paid today not sure how it works, I would think that if I'm lucky enough to be granted pip it will be paid next month now.

      You only get backdated if its a NEW claim

      I migrated from DLA

      to PIP

      Pip to over the payments and took £112 from my last DLA PAYMENT AND A FURTHER £30 from my PiP payment

      So be aware

      I recieved enhanced for both mobility and care

      PiP took over the payment in september last DLA PAYMENT WAS £112 SHORT ....MY MOST RECENT PAYMENT was a FURTHER £30 SHORT

      Of course they spin some BS about how you get paud this is nonsemse as my paymentvwhere concurrent with no breaks or gaps

      On last DLA. Payment they stopped a full weeks equivilent ....with no explanation

      Then a further £30 first new PIP award again with no explanation

      They try to claw back from those with existing rewards and because we cant get backdated we get shafted ..think how many existing claiments this happens to!
