Yes the 12 Sept is 4 weeks to 10 Oct but first payment is not till 5th November. I would expect it to be earlier than that unless i am also wrong?

This was a DLA to PIP transfer so your DLA remain in payment for a further four weeks after the PIP Decision is made.

Its all so complicated and not transparent at all. Who on earth decides on these rule and what are they based on. Does someone just make them up?. I am sure they must just to confuse us all even more.

They are defined in the legislation covering the DLA to PIP transfers.

I have looked at these guidelines but i am more confused than ever with all the legal jargon so i will accept that you know more than me and just accept what you have told me. Thankyou once again for all your help.

You need to wait until you have had your first full PIP payment, the first may only be a part payment as PIP is paid on a different day from DLA.

Once you have you can then check that you have the right money, so look at

- your last full DLA payment
- your last DLA payment
- your first PIP payment
- your first full PIP payment.
