Do you get a backpayment after your MR from PIP?

Hello, I not too long ago started a Claim for PIP, I was awarded the “standard” rate for both Living & Mobility, for the time being I had to accept it, but A Mandatory Reconsideration went in as soon as I got my PIP report back..10 weeks later now I have been enhanced on the living side of PIP, but they still will not award me the enhanced mobility, this is fine as I will Appeal them further to Tribunal, however my query is will I still be backdated from the original decision they made, to the one they have made now? They never make these things easy, nor explain in much detail, any helps greatly appreciated. Thanks

    If you didn't transfer from DLA you will receive the difference between Standard and Enhanced daily living backdated from the date you rang to start your claim.



    If you transferred from DLA then it will be from the start of your PIP award.
  • Hi, I’ve not been awarded DLA ever really, When I started my claim i literally was just awarded the PIP, it was only until yesterday I got a decision that they will be enhancing the living side of it slightly, I am just curious as to if I will be getting back paid from their original decision which was in September

    As you weren't claiming DLA. If this was a new claim and not a review on an existing PIP award then you'll be backdated the different between standard and Enhanced from the day you rang to start your claim off and not from the date the decision was made.



    If it's a review of an existing claim then you'll receive the difference from the date the decision was made.
  • Ah, thank you so kindly! It is not a review, it was simply their decision after my MR. I am hoping to receive the backpayment soon, but if not I’ll seek more advice, once again, thanks so much!!

    A new claim means backdated money for the difference between the 2 from the date you rang to start your claim.
  • Are we on the same page here? i clearly stated that i already have an existing claim for pip, i have put in for a mandatory reconsideration for it to be enhanced , they said they will enhance one half of it, my query is will i be backdated?

    I find your comment extremely rude! what on earth do you mean, are we on the same page? I believe you maybe on a different page here.


    I already answered your question correctly because of my knowledge in the benefit system. As previously advised, because this was a first PIP claim and you weren't transferring from DLA then you'll receive backdated money from the date you rang to start your claim and this will be the difference between standard and Enhanced daily living, which is £28.95 per week owed.



    The reason you'll receive the difference between the 2 is because you were already claiming Standard daily living and you should have already received backdated money when the original decision was made, which would have been backdated to the date you rang to start your claim.
  • i’m honestly not being rude and i’m really sorry if it has come across that way, i just generally don’t quite understand what you are saying, to be fair i am a disabled young person who has never really had experience with the benefit system and i am just wondering if i will be backdated after seems as though they have changed their minds to enhance my daily living due to my MR. once again though i never meant to come across rude, if i’m being honest i didn’t expect anyone to get so deep into the topic about dla when i never even mentioned it, i just expected to receive an answer of “yes or no” for receiving a backpayment AFTER a mandatory reconsideration
  • i was literally just expecting a yes or no answer sometimes you can’t just explain these things the way you do to people and expect them to understand what you are saying, not everyone is as smart as you🥺

    I had to ask the question about DLA because a lot of people are still in the process of transferring across. If i hadn't asked that question then i could have given you completely incorrect advice.



    To put it in a simpler text, you'll receive £28.95 per week backdated to the date you first rang to start your claim.
