    Hi,

    Why haven't you received payment? is it because you were refused PIP? More information is needed to be able to help you because with little information it's impossible to give any advice.

      This is correct but only if they received your PIP forms back within the time stated. If you were late returning them then your DLA will stop.

      Have you rang DWP to ask why they stopped? You've left it all this time to ask on forum? 😮

      You haven't answered my question.

      It's definitely not illegal to stop any payments. There must have been a reason to stop them and that reason is either because you didn't apply for PIP within the timescale when you first received the letter to apply.

      Or you didn't return the PIP forms on time.

      If you didn't do any of these within the time given then your DLA will stop.

      If you're awarded PIP successfully then you'll be backdated to the date your money stopped.

      There's nearly always a long wait for someone to answer and very often you can be waiting an hour, sometimes longer. I always find ringing early in the morning the best time. It's a free number to ring so my advice is to ring and wait in the queue for someone to answer.

      Sending letters to DWP isn't the best way to communicate with them because they often don't answer. The address to write to is also different depending on what are you live.

      To be honest there's not much CAB can do other than ring them on your behalf, which can also take time. Trying to get an appointment with these is often a nightmare because they are so busy.

      The tick is to keep on hold until they answer, it's free so no worries about the cost anymore.

      Maybe it depends where you live.

      My local CAB were absolutely brilliant.

      Getting an appointment was no problem and they filled in my PIP form for me.

      They also kept in contact with me until I received a decision.

      Could not fault them at all.
