PIP payments can be issued to those who are suffering with long term physical or mental health conditions. To be eligible, these conditions must have left claimants with difficulties with getting around (or both) for at least three months.

To determine if a claimant is eligible, they will likely need to be assessed by an independent healthcare professional following a claim.

So long as a claimant is eligible for PIP, they’ll usually be paid once every four weeks.

A decision letter will be issued to claimants laying out when the first payment will come through, and what day of the week they’ll be paid going forward.

Should a payment date fall on a bank holiday, claimants will usually be paid on the first day before the bank holiday.

Should a claimant be unhappy with a decision from the DWP following a claim, they can have it challenged under mandatory reconsideration rules.

Where claimants receive payments, they will be required to report any changes in their circumstance to the Government.

This can include if they go into hospital, change address or see changes in their condition.

This is important to note as if changes are not reported, claimants may have to pay a penalty and could even be taken to court.
