    Does PIP get backdated to claim date?

    Does PIP get backdated to claim date? 12th Aug 14 at 10:08 PM
    Hi,

    Just a quick query regarding PIP benefits. If a claim is agreed, does the money get paid from this date, or does it get backdated to the date you originally rang up to start your claim?

    I have tried searching for this, but can't seem to get a straight answer. I was hoping someone here might be able to help.

    Apologies if I have managed to miss something obvious somewhere!

    Just in case no-one filled you in:

    MR = Mandatory Review

    That's not really very helpful. Statistically speaking so far that is the case, but more cases are being reviewed before appeal now so even if a mandatory reconsideration is unsuccessful, there is a chance just appealing it will trigger a review and it doesn't go all the way to a tribunal. And even if it does, tribunal outcomes are usually fair so people recieve all the entitlement backdated to the original claim date.

    PiP and question
    Hi All
    Iv seen you cannot get backdates for pip of you already on DLA which to me is not quite fair. Because you are losing out. As I was on low dla low care and high mobility And Aplied for pip at the end of aug. And finally got a decision on the 8th of Dec so that is close to 12 weeks Iv missed out on at a extra £35 a week. Also. They have said My dla finishes on the 8th of jan so another 4 weeks at a extra£35 missed out on. Then they are starting to pay pip from 30th Jan. So around £576 missed out on because you cannot get pip at the same time. No wonder they take their time on Chang over’s.

    These have always been the rules, from day one. You can't expect to receive both DLA and PIP at the same time. If you weren't awarded PIP, you wouldn't expect to have to pay back your DLA money from the date you applied for PIP would you?
