Responding to the changes, Debbie Abrahams MP, Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, told “We set aside £3.7bn for the total cost of abiding by legal decision around PIP at the last election, this announcement amounts to less than £250m put back into the system over this parliament.

“This is the context of roughly half of those with a higher rate of DLA seeing a cut in their award when moving to PIP.

Hi PIP awarded after 3 mths with no medical, so many many thanks for all your help, its such a relief.

Thought it would be pretty straight forward now but nooooo......

If you are over pension credit age, the law requires us to automatically treat your claim for Housing Benefit as being made 3 months before we actually received your claim.

This would mean we can consider paying you for a period up to 3 months before the date we received your application form.PIP, which was was introduced in 2013 to replace Disability Living Allowance (DLA), brought in a new face-to-face assessment and regular reviews of a claimant's ability to wash, dress, cook and get around as well as reading and communicating.The system has come under fire on numerous occasions, accused of denying benefits to those who need them.Have requested a mand recon over the phone but when I rang the week after they said there was no chance, only backdate a month.Cits advise confirm it should be backdated to start of PIP award but no one at HMRC has any idea.Realistically, the whole system needs to be reviewed.
