    Hi, it could be to do with PIP.  If the PIP award would result in premiums on income support they might be in the process of updating your claim to recognise that.  Impossible to say without contacting them whether it's a normal delay (although obviously not ideal) because of that or if something has gone wrong causing it to be stopped in error.  Give them a call, hopefully it will be resolved fairly easily.

    You don't really need to inform them because they would already know. I highly doubt that the reason for no payment would be because of the PIP. The only real way to find out would be to ring them and ask.

      Just so you know Severe Disability Premium will only be added to the Income Support if there's no other adults living in the house, unless the other adults are recieving DLA/PIP as well. Also no one must be claiming Carers Allowance for you.

    You dont need to inform income support about receiving pip they will already know . I didnt tell them and within couple of weeks of receiving my frist pip payment i got a letter from income support to fill out and send back so they could make sure i was getting the right amount of money. Best thing you can do is call them and why you havent been payed.
