Hi all
i attended pip tribunal on the 8th March and the decision letter still not arrived.

i telephoned courts who said they will send it out as there was only a draft on the system, and didn’t have copy of decision letter, so would have to follow it up.
I telephoned DWP today and they haven’t received letter but strangely asked the questions whether been in prison resident  care hospital and said it was a large amount of minus whether I could manage this and bank details
Has anyone experienced this and I think I may have been awarded but not sure

    Sounds like there is an award. You could have asked them what the award is and they would have told you. You should have also received the decision letter from the Tribunal because usually they send the one to DWP at the same time. I'd advise you to contact HMCTS again.
    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.
