    PIP first payment 15th Mar 17 at 4:51 PM
    I was hoping one of you lovely people could answer a question for me. I was awarded PIP and had my last DLA payment on the 16th February. Given PIP is paid four weeks in arrears, does this mean that I will get my first PIP payment tommrow?
    Thank you for your help.

    Easiest way to get your answer would be to ring them and ask.

    I thought DLA was paid in the same way - therefore you should have had your payment yesterday?

    DLA is usually paid 3 weeks in arrears and 1 week in advance, so your first PIP payment would be due next week.

    My relative has just been awarded PIP after being transferred from DLA. Her award letter stated exactly the payment dates and amounts of the last DLA and first PIP payments.

    Her DLA has been paid 3 weeks in arrears, 1 week in advance (though some people's are paid 4 weeks in arrears), whilst PIP is always 4 weeks in arrears.

    As a result, her first PIP payment is 3 weeks after the last DLA, but on a different weekday, and the amount is a reduced pro-rata amount based on the number of elapsed days since the final DLA payment. Thereafter, the PIP is to be paid at the normal rate every 4 weeks on the new weekday.

    Hope that helps.
