    Hi jackie and welcome
    This is becoming more common place from the DWP.
    The only way they can appeal is on an error of law, which almost never happens.
    Did they say that they had requested a statement of reason (SOR) ?
    11 weeks is a long time to wait.
    If they have requested an SOR, then you should ring the tribunal clerk for a progress report.
    If they haven't, then they should have put your award into payment and you need to ring them.

    They can only appeal on an error of law, which seldom happens. To do this they would first ask for a SOR from the judge. This they have to do within 28 days of the decision. Unfortunately the judge can take his own time. You should have received a  letter from DWP saying that they were asking for SOR.
    When the SOR is received, DWP then have 28days to lodge their appeal  or put your award into payment.
    The only thing you can do is to ring the tribunal clerk and ask for an update due to length of waiting time.
     No point ringing DWP as  until they have SOR they can do no more.
    Sorry its not better news
