Hi everyone,I'm so frustrated! After the stress of facing a judge,doctor and DWP rep at a tribunal ( over phone) which was better than in person in my opinion! As you probably know it's a long drawn out situation. So I had my appeal on 30.01.24,and I won my appeal,but this is not the end! I have a hscp worker helping me as well! So I have waited 10/12 weeks,nothing in my journal from DWP to say I have lcwra,so I have still got to go to job centre and supply fit notes. I have contacted UC through my journal twice,and the latest reply is my decision is with a appeals writer who then inform the DWP,and have told me to call them myself,talk about passing the buck. Totally sick of this it's a pain in the a** ,is there anything else I can do 🥴

    Hi @nockster74, sorry to hear you're in this frustrating situation. I'm afraid I'm not sure what else you can do apart from keep nudging them in any way possible, but perhaps some of our members have been through a similar thing and can suggest some alternatives.

    If it drags on much longer, it could be worth seeing if your MP can do anything for you, sometimes they can get in contact on your behalf and hurry things along. I hope you're not waiting too much more :)

    Have they requested the Statement Of reasons and Record Of Proceedings? Doing that can delay the award being put 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.

    For the error in law they will need to request both the SOR and ROP first. The SOR will explain the reasons for the decision. The ROP is a recorded copy of the hearing itself. They may not always tell you if request those. 

    Once those are received they have 1 month to request it but it may take quite sometime for the Judge to write them and send them. This maybe why there’s a delay. 

    It’s very rare for them to appeal the decision, even if they request those. Requesting them doesn’t mean they are appealing.

    Yes I know it has but that doesn’t mean the judge has sent them out already. It often takes quite sometime for the judge to write them as they do them in their own spare time.
