Hi s,

Welcome to Benefits and Work :)

If this was a fresh/new PIP Claim, any PIP payments should be backdated to the start date of your claim, which would have been the initial phone call if you made one.

If you were in receipt of DLA, and have been transferred over to PIP, then legislation states that your DLA will continue in payment until 4 weeks after the date of the new PIP decision, as discussed : Here.

Sorry to butt in, is it advisable for all new claimants of DLA to just claim for PIP first then? Instead of going for DLA?

Hi J,

Unless you live in Northern Ireland, (Where PIP is not active) you can no longer make a new claim for DLA, so any new claim would have to be PIP, there is no choice in the matter. :)
