    It means that DWP have changed their decision awarding you LCWRA from 13th June 2022. Great news and be sure to keep an eye out on any further correspondence from HMCTS & DWP. I can't give you an exact timeframe unfortunately as these things can take a few weeks to process.

    Hi @ccrkcx, welcome :) Seems like some good news popped through your door! How does this compare to the decision in May can I ask?

    If this was only recently submitted to the Tribunal then the Tribunal likely need time to review the submitted documents and respond.
    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
