Below is the recommendation and reference answer for question "URGENT DLA/PIP QUESTION!!!?" It was collected and sorted by the editor of this site but not sure the answer is entirely accurate.

no

Your payment is for the previous month. So the answer is yes.


"DLA is normally paid direct into your bank account every four weeks in arrears. It can be paid weekly in advance if you’re terminally ill. You can spend it as you wish: you don’t have to spend it on disability-related needs. Payment normally stops if you go into hospital or a care home for 28 days or longer." https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/money...

I HOPE YOU KNOW YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO APPEAL
There will be a right of appeal to the First-tier Tribunal (Social Entitlement Chamber) against most decisions concerning entitlement to PIP. However, the Act includes a power to require consideration of a revision before an appeal. If a PIP decision notice says that the right of appeal only arises after the Secretary of State has considered whether to revise the decision, then the claimant must first request a revision before being able to appeal.

It's paid 4 weeks in arrears so it will get one more payment.

Hi Libby
sadly teddy is incorrect in this matter you have had your last payment. so time to appeal against it.
