Buried Alive - The PIP Sequel! 9 months 1 week ago #197164

Hello. I wanted to ask the following question on my ESA thread (Buried Alive) but can't find it through my profile. So having to ask it through my PIP one. For a long time I have been entitled to SDP and EDP due to the benefits I am on. Eventually a couple o months ago I put an application in with the help of my support worker. I also asked for the back pay. My support worker spoke to them last week and was told it has been dealt with but has now gone to a decision maker. We are confused as to why this should be. Support worker suggested it could poss be because of the back pay request. Can you please throw any light on this for me as I thought back pay was paid automatically. As usual any dealings with them have set the anxiety to extremes, although today for some reason i am on ground level, just, and able to post my question. Thanx a lot PP :)

Ps could you please tell me how to find my 'Buried Alive'. Ta!

No new or increased payments are made without a Decision being made, my guess is that the amount owed is large enough that it has had to be passed to a DM to confirm that it is correct.

Ok thank you Gordon, that's put my mind at rest. Always helps to know that it's just normal procedure and nothing more.

Thanx agen PP
