PIP Monthly Award Question?

Recommended Posts

My wife who is disabled is currently receiving PIP she receives the two parts both at the high rate.  Her award is £145.35 per week, however the payment that is paid into her account monthly is £581.40. Doing a quick calculation £145.35 x 52 (weeks per year) = £7558.20 per year, divide by 12 for the monthly payment and the payment is £629.85 per month.

 

Am I missing something in my calculation for the differences in the monthly amount?

PIP is normally paid every 4 weeks, not monthly.

Yes, I do realise that. There are however 12 PIP payments per year so the monthly calendar rates still appear to be incorrect?

So far as I am aware, PIP is always paid every 4 weeks and I've never before heard of anyone being paid monthly. For example, I am always paid every 4th Thursday, so is your wife being paid on, for example, the first of every month rather than on a specific day?

 

If your wife is only being paid monthly then she or you need to contact DWP to query it.

If paid four weekly, over the course of the year, you get 13 payments, with one month you get two payments. 13 x 4 = 52

That maybe the answer?  I will have to check back on previous payments. Any idea which month of the year is the usual month for two payments?

It will vary, depending on when your payments are, there is no set period. Payments are every 28 days as opposed to calendar monthly, which is what confuses people, as over the course of the year, the day it is paid will change. If you divide the four weekly payments by four you get the weekly payment of her entitlement. 

 

Some pension companies or employers often pay four weekly so it isn’t nothing new
