    Hi @kodi15 In most cases, you are asked to wait in a separate room while the decision is made but you are usually told the decision on the same day. 

    Please see here for more information: 

    As you were not told the outcome on the same day, maybe they need further evidence regarding your appeal, but you should have been told what the next steps are regarding your appeal decision. I suggest calling the number on your appeal letter to find out what happens next.

    Perhaps someone else on the online community has been in a similar situation who might be able to offer further advice based on their experience?

    I hope this helps.

    Sometimes they have not got time on the day to make their decision.  If you haven't heard after a week phone the tribunal clerk for an update.

    Hi kodi

    normally the dwp take 5-8 weeks to put a tribunal decision into payment unless they can find an error in law to challenge the decision

    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
