Hi everyone

Can anyone tell me if they back date your PIP claim if you are awarded and where do they back date it from? Is it from your initial call to claim PIP or from when you sent in your PIP form?

I’ve had my PIP assessment over 6 weeks ago now and had a recent text message 2 weeks ago to state its with a decision maker and will be contacted within 4 weeks. It’s been 14 weeks now since I returned the initial form.

Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    If you're transferring from DLA then there is no back dated money. If this is a new claim then your money will be backdated to the day you rang to start your claim, providing a decision goes in your favour. Good luck.

      Also have you rang to ask for a copy of the assessment report? This will give you some idea what the decision will be as they mostly go with that report. If you haven't asked for a copy then i'd advise you to ring tomorrow as it's also very handy if a decision doesn't go in your favour and you need to go down the Mandatory Reconsideration route.

      Hi Denise

      Yes this is a brand new claim for PIP. I have not requested a report, I will ring them tomorrow to request this. 

      Once I have requested this report, how long does it take to arrive to myself do you know?

      If you live in the UK they should agree to send it to you, length of time totally depends on how long it takes them to send it but it's really like saying how long is a piece of string. I guess 10 days maybe but i really have no idea.

      If you live in Northern Ireland they won't send it until a decision is made.
