TOPIC: Won appeal but when will I hear from DWP about pay

Won appeal but when will I hear from DWP about pay 1 year 10 months ago #133915

Hi all, my sons change from DLA to PIP was refused but after a long stressful battle and lots of help from Benefits and Work we finally won his appeal - Enhanced rate mobility and standard rate care instead of High care and low mobility on DLA. We had the letter from the tribunal a few weeks ago now (letter dated 9/4/15) but we still haven't heard from DWP. Does anyone have any idea how long it takes them to contact us and start paying my son again?

Hi and Welcome to Benefits and Work

If your username is your real name you might wish to change it in order to maintain a degree of anonymity. You can do so easily by following the advice in this FAQ.

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?


It can take around 8 weeks for DWP to commence payment, you can sometimes speed up the process by sending in a copy of the tribunal decision.
