    There's only the helpine that you can ring but they would only be able to do the same as you and put a message onto your journal. I would advise you to do that yourself and put it in the payment section and ask them.

    After a Tribunal win it can be up to 8 weeks, sometimes longer to recieve any money that's owed. DWP have the same chance we do to appeal the decision. Before they can do this they first need to request the Statement of Reasons from HMCTS. Once they receive this they need to find the error in law before they can go any further. They sometimes request it but rarely appeal it. If they have requested it then it can delay paying you what's owed and putting your award into payment.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
