    The only deadline i can think of is the 1 month to request the SOR but if your hearing was only a couple of weeks ago then it can't be that. After a Tribunal win it can take up to about 8 weeks to pay what's owed. All you can do is wait.
    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.

    When phoning DWP you are actually speaking to someone from an outsourced call centre, they don’t have a full understanding of the benefit system.

    I'm not aware of any deadline for putting your award into payment after a Tribunal win. I don't know what other advice you would like. I know it's frustrating having to wait but you've done everything you can do for now so you'll need to wait.
    Try to focus on something else.

    I know that is it right what the other user said that they are just call centres and don’t actually know what they talking about but can’t see why he would say 14th march to just make it up

    You’re overthinking this, as Poppy has said above there’s no deadline for putting an award in to payment. I honestly don’t know what the 14th date is and can’t imagine he’d be making something up but it’s not official protocol to have a date for these sorts of things.

    That aside, please do let us know if you do hear anything close after that date.

    There's no deadline. Of course it's with a decision maker because they are the only ones that can put the award into payment. I know it's difficult but please try to focus on something else. Ringing PIP so often like this can't be helping you.
