    DLA to Pip transition

    DLA to Pip transition 9th May 18 at 7:51 AM
    I've been transition from DLA to Pip and like everyone else and very confused by the payment dates.

    I have always had DLA paid weekly on a Wednesday and obviously PIP is paid 4 weekly. On the award letter it says that I will be paid 45 ish on Friday the 11th to cover from May the 9th to May the 11th and then payments will commence for weekly after that.

    I suppose my question is, when paid weekly is DLA paid in advance or in arrears?&

    Well then I have no idea.

    As far as I was aware DLA and PIP were paid 4 weekly, in arrears, I have known people get the payment weekly if they have a terminal illness.

    I started receiving DLA in 1993 and then you had the choice to receive it weekly fortnightly or 4 weekly. I chose weekly because I had two young children and needed weekly income/B]

    Weekly in arrears was an option for me in 2003 for my first claim could have been because I was transitioning from school and the claim had an appointee though? We went for 4 weekly so don't know the specifics, just remember it being an option
    Bounts, Quidco, Shop and Scan, Receipt Hog, Costco Cashback, Debit card cashback

    NOT BUYING IT
    (unless it's on offer and can get my loyalty points)
