How long for payment after tribunal

Hi there

I won my first tier PIP tribunal 3 weeks ago but I still haven't heard from the DWP about payment. Is there a time frame for the DWP to make a decision as to whether they are going to ask for a SOR?

Many thanks in advance

    Hi @alijennings, and welcome!

    From what others have said, the DWP seem to usually take 5-8 weeks to put a tribunal decision into payment.
