So scared don’t know if it should give up 1 day 4 hours ago #254619

Hi Graham

You will have to be patient and wait for the decision letter to arrive to know exactly what you have been awarded, only then can you make a decision to appeal or not depending on the outcome.

You state that monies have been paid into your bank account, I would wait a week, if no decision has arrived by then, contact DWP and explain that monies have gone into your bank but you do not know what the amount is for as you have not received any letter from DWP.

Let us know how you get on.

Thank you.

Am I right that back pay for a Mandatory Reconsideration is from the date the original decision was made and not the day I applied?

Hi Graham

Your backdate payment should be from the date on your claims form unless you were late in sending back your form, in which case it will be from the date DWP receive your application form.
