    pip payment

    Hi, In my letter from the DWP, it states that PIP is not paid from the day you send in your form, it cannot be back dated. Has anybody else seen this?.

    That sounds like a wild change that would never be approved by the government. It must be exceptional circumstances. I've never heard anything like that

    IF you are transferring from DLA to PIP, that would be correct.

    Please clarify - you've never received DLA? This is your first PIP application?

    David,
    I've looked back through your previous posts but am still not clear if yours is a new claim or a transfer from DLA.

    New claims for PIP are backdated to the initial claim date if/when awarded.
    (You don't get anything until after the award is made).

    Transfers from DLA are not backdated at all.
    (Because you have still been receiving DLA whilst waiting for the PIP decision).
    I don't know everything. - But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.
