    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!

    For mine I got a lump sum payment then monthly after that. I didn't double check though if it was when I phoned or from when I posted the forms back, but it was a good few months money in one go.

    Hey guys . quick question have just found out that my pip claim has not been successful . I am asking for a MR . I have just been informed though that if my MR is accepted then I won't get the backpay to the original phone call ( 12 months) and will only get it backdatedb to when the original decision was made ??? . is this correct and if so how could they possibly justify this. Thanks in advance .

    Indie Kid, Suse and Marcus, thank you for the information! Apologies for taking so long to reply, I have had a lot going on and have neglected logging in for a while.

    My claim did go through and, as you all advised, I received the backdated payment before my monthly payment started.

    Thomas, I'm sorry that I can't help with your query (I genuinely don't know, to be honest I'm not even sure what MR stands for - I presume it is to do with appealing the decision?), but didn't want to ignore your post. Hopefully someone will come along who knows more about the system.

    Who told you about the backdating policy? If it was the people dealing with your claim, could you maybe ask them to send you / tell you where to find any relevant documentation that confirms this is the case?

    Thomas, not sure who advised you of that, but it's wrong. I started my claim for PIP on November 12th, and had a decision in July. I applied for an MR and was granted enhanced mobility which wasn't on the original decision. In my letter from DWP it clearly states that they will back pay to the time you first applied on the telephone.

    If you already had some monies from the decision, such as awarded standard rate and the MR result stated you should have been in the enhanced rate. In that case you would get the monetary difference between the two dating back to the original claim. Hope that makes sense. Good luck

    Kia Ora,

    I just revived (what I believe is) pip backdated payment. However I am very confused. My back payment goes back 8 to 9 weeks. (lucky me) however the amount I got sent doesn't add up.

    for example 55.10 or 82.3 a week. Times both of them by 8 or 9 weeks I don't get the sum of 477.29 onto my calculator. So I wish to know what is going on.

    I know some people would say stuff like "the government doesn't have to give you any money" by that logic we don't have to give the government any tax payments.

    I hope someone can help me, chur

    I made a slight mistake. It is 427.29 not 477.29 even then nothing adds up

    Confused
    I called DWP And advised of a change of circumstances at Xmas time on my mobility needs. I was told they weren't making adjustments and to claim PIP with the change, which I did on the 23rd.Dec.

    It has taken until now to receive my award letter after having to go through ESA (Doctors Visit) and support group award, this was then followed by pip (home visit) a few weeks ago.


    I received my letter which awarded me the enhanced rate on both care and mobility, so my mobility was clearly reviewed. However, they are saying I am not entitled to it being backdated because I was on DLA (lower rate) mobility and (higher rate) care.


    If I advised DWP of a change in circumstances in December and was told they weren't considering any new changes and to apply to PIP (which was my only reason for making an early claim to PIP) rather than wait for the form to come automatically.....then why am I not entitled for my backdate to be considered from my original 'change in circumstances' date?


    The explanation of you can't receive DLA and PIP at the same time is confusing, surely the DLA should be backdated then to Xmas and PIP going forward??

    no you're not.

    if you had been reassessed under DLA, your award would only have increased from there date the decision was made and not the date you asked them to reconsider.

    you wont get any backpayment

    How individuals make a claim to PIP
    To start a new PIP claim, contact the DWP through the details provided in the PIP claimant guide. This includes the details of a Next Generation Text (NGT) relay service and a British Sign Language (BSL) video relay service.

    Once a claim has been made, DWP will register the claim and send the individual a ‘How your disability affects you’ (PIP2) form to fill in, together with an information booklet.

    If the person is entitled to PIP, they will get paid from the date the claim is registered.

    Was this a transfer from DLA? If so then you'll be backdated to the date of the decision and not the date you started the claim. If not then money is backdated to the start of your claim.

This thread is almost 9 months old. With the amount of threads you've started then i would have thought you'd have been used to the by now.


    To answer your question, if the person isn't transferring from DLA and the PIP is awarded successfully then it's backdated to the date they rang to start their claim.


    If transferring from DLA there's no backdated money and PIP will start 3 weeks after the DLA ends.
