    Default DLA first payment date.

    Hi,
    Does payment start on day claimed, on the first Monday or is there a three day waiting period?
    thanks

    If Its awarded on the monday then you should get a payment on the wednesday of that same week if its paid weekly, no three days waiting,
    but if you are being paid four weekly then it will be the fourth wednesday after the award.
    are you on any other benefits

    Thanks Mike, I'm also on I.S.
    I'm just about to get some DLA backdated (from Friday 31/10/08.),
    just want to check everything calculated correctly.
    Wondered if I actually get from from that date, or there is some waiting rule.

    Default Re: DLA first payment date.

    Just had money paid today bank account today, and also the letter about it has arrived.
    The letter states I'm being paid from 05/11/08.
    I have checked my paperwork which states 31/10/08,
    also the tribunal paperwork states 31/10/2008.
    Is it best to ring up and ask why the dates differer?

    Also been paid 2009 Christmas bonus which was 10

    Does anyone know what was the "qualifying week" was for 2008?

    Thanks for any help.

    Its paid correctly,

    awarded from 31/10/08 thats a friday
    and you got paid it on the 5/11/08 thats the first wednesday after the award. If its a full weeks DLA then thats right.

    As to the Xmas bonus its paid the first week in December,

    Default Re: DLA first payment date.

    Hi Mikey, still a bit confused.

    Letter states "This is for the DLA that we owe you from
    05/11/2008 to 02/02/10.

    Worked it out from the 5th and I make it the same as the letter (within 25p).
    But if I worked it out from the 31st it's an extra 25.

    So I know they haven't paid me for the 31st, 1st, 2nd 3rd & 4th.

    So either they only start paying from the first Wednesday, there is a 5 day waiting, or they have calculated it wrong.

    Did you got a full week on that Wednesday, its paid in arrears remember, also have you realised that you have uprates in the DLA in April 2009.

    Make a typoicon above rate changed on the 6/04/09

    I get part weeks when I calculate it.
    31/10/08 to 5/04/09 22 weeks and 3 days. @ 35.50
    Then 6/04/09 to 02/02/10 43 weeks and 2 days @ 37.30

    Is there something I'm missing?

    Called the Help line for DLA.

    Was told they don't pay in part weeks and the "Payday" was on the first
    Wednesday (02/11/08.)
    So because of that I lose the first 5 days of my claim.
