    Waiting times for backpay?

    Hi guys.

    I was wondering if there is a rough guide to how long it takes the DWP to pay back payments? I won my PIP tribunal at the start of the year and money owed was paid to me in a couple of weeks.
    I was put in the support group just over 4 weeks ago and my payment is sorted out but no word on back payment yet. I only ask as PIP was sorted quickly but I also know the DWP can be very slow. If I should be chasing them up I know sooner is better as far as they are concerned.
    If anyone has any info it would be much appreciated.

    I woke up needing a wheelchair late Aug 2015 and that's things benefits wise just getting sorted out now. They have been deducting money from me right up until a few weeks ago from loans etc allegedly from 2000! Things i cannot remember but they are sure I owe it! When i phone up about stuff for me for now the clown on the phone doesnt even know what day it is! What a crew eh? They obviously have everyone with a brain on the collections team and all the empty heads on the pay out team. Not a bad system they have!
