    Great news. After a Tribunal win it can take up to about 8 weeks for DWP to pay what is owed and put your award into payment. 
    Those 6 months you read was highly likely referring to the timescale for new claim decisions. 
    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.

    Before DWP make a payment they will contact you to ask if you’ve been in prison or hospital. Once that is done they will soon pay what is owed. As previously advised it can take up to 8 weeks.

    What are they asking about being in hospital. I.e. When what for  how long for? Is it for the period since tribunal or anytime from assess to tribunal.

    Heya @Dipsydee this is a fairly old post, so I'm hoping their issue has been sorted now. :)

    Sorry Albus. Not sure of your response. The posts was referring to winning tribunal but dwp ring claimants to ask questions about hospital etc. before payment. My question was referring to that.

    The comment you're responding to is from August  @Dipsydee so you may not get a reply from the original poster.   The DWP usually asks about hospital stays etc, but will specify within a certain time frame.

    And that can be any time frame. I.e when and/or how long in hospital. As in, was it for more than 4 weeks. Was it during or after appeal.

    If it was a new claim to start with then it will be from then. If it was a review then it will be from the date the decision was made. It really depends on each individual case.

    However, as Albus has advised, this is now an old thread and the member hasn't been active since August.
