PIP tribunal successful - how long does it take to receive backdated money?

Hi.
This is my first post,so hi everyone.
I had my pip tribunal 5th June 2017.
A 1 hour 15 minutes of grilling about my condition.
I have since 2011 sciatica,endiometris causing acute pain.I have a cocktail of medication including Matrifen patches.In November 2016 pip reduced my claim from enhanced rate to standard after an ATOS interview.I asked for reconsideration and lost.
I new this was wrong but as I suffer from anxiety and depression I was worried about doing the next step a tribunal.
To cut it short I new that's what pip want people  to get to this stage and give up.
I was so scared but persevered and WON my case.My money is to be back dated 6 months, does anyone know how long it takes to get money I am owed?.If you have the same problem in pip reducing your claim please .FIGHT IT.!!!

    Hi @juejue:

    Congratulations on your success!

    Was there anything further that you needed?

    Is it correct that a claim to PIP cannot be backdated?
  • CockneyRebelCockneyRebel Community champion Posts: 5,259 Disability Gamechanger
    A new PIP claim will be paid from the date of the decision
    A change from DLA tp PIP, PIP will be paid from 4 weeks after the decision

    Hi @juejue  
    Im so pleased you won your appeal. After my 28 day period finished on the 13th of June.  I didn't receive a years back payment till the 20th July. My husband wrote 2 letters of complaint. And a few telephone conversations with the complaints Secretary.
    I hope that helps.

    , hi, good afternoon everybody just wants to let everyone know that I had my hearing on Monday my pic. And I was awarded my daily living allowance back so I'm over the moon after 2 years waiting and getting the award because basically I went in there thinking I wasn't going to get anything back and Mike Judge was very pleasant a very nice very helpful and I think when I went to get my assessment he said to us that one of the assessors never filled in my form and that's the reason why I lost my daily living allowance so I'm going to be getting that back but I just don't know when that's the next question
  • CockneyRebelCockneyRebel Community champion Posts: 5,259 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi ladycat

    DWP usually take 5-8 weeks to put a tribunal award into payment
    You should ring DWP in a few days to make sure they have received the decision

    Hi CR, 
    thank you for your reply, maybe I will ask my friend to call on Monday if Iv not received a letter, weather really bad here, as is a lot of places. My speech is not good to call myself. 
    not sure where to call though, is it DWP or Tribunal number?

  • CockneyRebelCockneyRebel Community champion Posts: 5,259 Disability Gamechanger
    The tribunal decision will come from the clerk of the court.

  • dee4848dee4848 Member Posts: 218 Pioneering
    @marieann1968 I remember reading an article That Theresa May is diabetic type1 and she claims everybody can lead a normal life with this condition maybe this is why people are getting refused ..but then Theresa May isn' also an MS sufferer , I hope you win your case .GoodLuck

    Marie Ann, I was really lucky, I only put appeal papers in in November 2017 and had my hearing this week.
    i live in central Scotland, not sure about the other parts of the country.
    who knows the what ifs and whys of this system except it causes untold anxiety and stress . Totally unacceptable.
    thank you, hope you are successful too

    Hi @marieann1968, and welcome to the community!

    So sorry to hear that you're having to wait so long for your tribunal- unfortunately this isn't uncommon, but as you say it puts people in a really difficult situation. You may like to check out this past discussion on tribunal waiting times. Please do keep us updated with your progress and if there's anything we can offer guidance on, please do let us know.

    Hi everyone, 
    just joined and wanted to add to this if thats OK.
    I have anxiety and depression issues, and after the death of my mum, I contracted a viral infection, which has left me with M.E. and Fibromyalgia, 
    I had a Pip assessment in Feb last year, and went from 17 points to 0.
    I asked for a reconsideration which was again no. So it went for an appeal.
    I finally got that last Thursday. I was in the room less than 5 minutes, and told. That they allowed the appeal, because they had no grounds to end it when they did as the original award was until November 2017, and basically they sent me for an assessment almost a year before they should. 
    They can send me for a new reassessment, if they feel they need to, as more evidence has now been submitted.

    Even if I do go for one (I probably will, I have a lot more paperwork to show about how the conditions affect me.)
    With the M.E. I also have symptoms of PotS (I used to be a nurse and used to diagnose/evaluate this in patients all the time )

    anyway.
    for anyone else going for a appeal hearing

    good luck!!!

    Hi Balletdude and welcome

    Congratulations
    It is usual for reviews to take place a year before the end date of an award
    It usually takes DWP 5-8 weeks to put an appeal award into payment
    It is advisable to ring the DWP to make sure that they have received a copy
    When you receive your award letter check  both the end date and the review date

    Hi i had to wait 6month for my tribunal which i eventually had on 19th April and was awarded the enhance mobility which was taken away from me from when i changed from DLA to PIP.  It was backdated to april 17 aswell.  I am due my normal payment on wednesday so i am hoping they have made the adjustments and pay my new rate along with the backdated payment.  I say to anyone if you do t get your mandortory reconsideration do go and appeal its not as bad as i thought it would be and just be yourself and answer with confidence and thruth.

    Hi @juejue,

    Welcome to Scope's online community! It's great to have you on board.

    I'm glad to hear your tribunal was successful - congratulations!

    I've moved this post to our Talk about PIP/DLA category. Do you have any other tips or advice about the appeals process which you give to other members of the community?

    As for how long it takes to get the money you're owed, I believe the average time is around 6 weeks, but you could call them and check on the progress if you like.  The contact number for ongoing claims is 0345 850 3322.

    I hope this helps and if you have any other questions, do get in touch!

    You can ring them anytime. Not sure why you think doing this will go against you. Hopefully it won't be too long before you have your money.

    @BenefitsTrainingCo, do you have any advice as to how to chase this up?

    Hi,

    I'm understanding this as you saying that he was sent for another assessment after the first decision was made, yes? What was the decision after the other assessment and what award of PIP does he currently have?

    Hi. I'm new to the community. I am the appointee for my son who has learning difficulties and epilepsy. He has been on DLA since he was 5. He is also in the support group for ESA. Just heard he has not been awarded any points at all in his pip assessment. His money will stop on 9th Sept. Does anyone know if we can claim any other benefit until it gets sorted. He won't have enough to keep his flat without some extra money as he still has to top up his rent and pay his bills.
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Community champion Posts: 22,214 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi,

    If he's claiming housing benefit, ESA and council tax reduction then this will be all he can claim. He maybe able to claim a discretionary housing payment for help with his rent but you'll need to speak to his local council for them to send you a form.

    As for the PIP your next step is a Mandatory reconsideration (MR) and you have 28 days to request this. Good luck.

  • kwitty26kwitty26 Member Posts: 2 Listener
    Thanks for your help. I just hope we can sort something for him in the meantime and hope we can overturn this decision. Seems really stupid to stop it now when nothing has actually changed with him. Just had a copy of the report from his assessment and loads of things have been written differently to what I actually said. Seems like they are trying to stop as many people as possible from getting anything.

    Hi there, 
    I have just had my very first PIP Tribunal after waiting for almost 52 weeks on 29th October 2018 after it was cancelled due to my judge, I am so thrilled that i won my case because the woman who originally assessed me for my PIP was not a fully qualified to do my assessment because she made some errors and lied on some of the questions that i originally answered witch made me feel so upset because someone was lying about my disabilities witch wasn't true at all.

    I don't know anything about these Tribunals and how they work out and also the back pay on what they owe me, I have rang up PIP and they told me that i have to wait 4- 5 weeks before everything has changed as they have the right to appeal the decision and also myself (witch i don't wanna do) i just wanted to know when everything has been sorted as i am finding this extremely difficult.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Great news. Yes, DWP have as much right to appeal the decision as we do. To do this they must first ask HMCTS for the statement of reasons. From this they must find an error in law, without this they can't take it any further.

    Backdated money can take at least 6 weeks. Unfortunately there's nothing you can do in the meantime but wait.

    It can take 8 weeks to receive back dated money. As Christmas is so close it's very unlikely you'll receive anything before.

    I know you're waiting for your back pay but have they started your PIP payments every month have you had a PIP payment can you tell me please I can wait for my back pay or just want my payments to start up anyone know when I get my first payment from Pip thank you
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Community champion Posts: 22,214 Disability Gamechanger
    It can also take 8 weeks to start your payment up. DWP have as much chance as we do to appeal the decision. To do this they have 1 month to ask for the statement of reasons, from this they must find an error in law in making the decision.

    I doubt it very much if you'll receive anything before Christmas.

    It can take 8 weeks to receive any backdated money owed after a Tribunal win.

    What was the Tribunal for and what is your face to face assessment for? ESA or PIP?

    Great news. There's no need to send anything to DWP because the Tribunal will have already done that. Backdated money can take 8 weeks after a Tribunal win. Hopefully not too long now.

    I had my appeal on may 29th and was told on Monday my payment would be in by Wednesday or Friday latest but I spoke to a man today and he said September? Can anyone shed some light in this?

    Hi @skyethomson96, it may be worth you giving them a call for clarification. It's my understanding it can take 6-8 weeks for them to put a tribunal decision in to payment but I'm not sure why you've been told September.

    I had my tribunal on 13th of sept was told I had been awarded the standard rate of the care component backdated to November 2018. Also told they were faxing the decision so the DWP got it immediately. Just got off phone to DWP 4 days later.  I was told it had only come onto their system at 5am today that there was a tribunal date for me on the 13th. I got my notification 4 weeks before my appearance date! Got told it might take another 6 weeks once they log the decision on to their system. :/

    Hi,

    Great news! backdated money can take 8 weeks after a Tribunal win and about the same time to put your award into payment. Sometimes it's less than this but there's really no timescales. Hopefully not too long.

    Hi,

    Great news. It can take 8 weeks to receive backdated money, which will be backdated to the start of your claim. IF it's Enhanced mobility and you're asking about the motability vehicle then you'll have to wait until you get the letter from DWP before you can order a car.

    Hi.
    This is my first post,so hi everyone.
    I had my pip tribunal 5th June 2017.
    A 1 hour 15 minutes of grilling about my condition.
    I have since 2011 sciatica,endiometris causing acute pain.I have a cocktail of medication including Matrifen patches.In November 2016 pip reduced my claim from enhanced rate to standard after an ATOS interview.I asked for reconsideration and lost.
    I new this was wrong but as I suffer from anxiety and depression I was worried about doing the next step a tribunal.
    To cut it short I new that's what pip want people  to get to this stage and give up.
    I was so scared but persevered and WON my case.My money is to be back dated 6 months, does anyone know how long it takes to get money I am owed?.If you have the same problem in pip reducing your claim please .FIGHT IT.!!!

    Hi, Me myself won my appeal two weeks ago and I’ve not even heard anything from DWP how long was it when you received your benefits if you don’t mind me asking I’ve got backdated 14 to 15 months

    Hi and welcome,

    Great news. It can take between 2-8 weeks, sometimes longer to receive backdated money. To be honest, there's really no timescales.

    Hi, I won my appeal on the 15th of January, and received all of my back payment on the 6th of February which was quite a lot as it was from 2018, so for me it was 3 weeks. 
    It can be upto 8 weeks some people of said!! But the average seems to be 2-4 weeks of receiving payment

    Ok thanks for that information also what happens if they appeal my won desicion? I'm worried about that caus I don't know what it means

    They can't just appeal the decision. First they have to request the statement of reasons and record of proceedings and they have 1 month from the date of the decision to do this. Once they receive those they have to find the error in law before they can appeal. If they do request these it doesn't mean they will appeal. They sometimes request them but rarely appeal. If they request them they will write to you. It will delay you receiving the backdated money if they are requested.

    Hi and welcome,

    Have you rang DWP? if you haven't then you'll need to do this and ask what's happening. It's possible they have requested the statement of reasons and record of proceedings. If they have then this will delay you receiving your backdated money and all you can do is wait.

    I won my tribunal mid April.  Received a letter at the end of April to say I'd receive the backpay on 1st of May and first PIP payment end of May (it's paid 4 weekly) so you should receive a similar letter soon.  Likely to be different timescales across the country but it can be as little as 2 weeks from my experience.
