Woke up after a bad night. This text message was waiting for me:-

'We've decided you qualify for PIP. We will send you a letter etc. We will pay your first PIP payment within 2 weeks etc...'

What my carer wants to know is can they now put in to renew their claim that was stopped?

    They can when you receive the decision notice. If you put it in too early and the decision does not appear on their computer system it will be refused.

    You should be applicable to carers credit / severe disability premium for the time you did not have a carer / someone claiming for you

    Nice one, so far so good. But wait for the letter before pulling party poppers. I had same text message, waited a fortnight, no letter. Rang them up and was told the message must have been sent in error and my tribunal date was so close, so was told to wait for that. Hope your"s is genuine.

      Got my letter today which included first PIP standard rate payment. It was backdated to when the DLA was stopped. My carer put in for carers allowance immediately. This was extremely easy to do online.

      The award is for 18 months with a day to day score of 8 and mobility score of 4.

      There were still plenty of imaginary comments from the assessor but I won't rock any boats for now.
