    Hello @dai80 Pleased to meet welcome. I am glad you joined.

    The answer to your question I do not know. Some one from our community might know or our team.

    Have you seen the information on benefits . They could be a answer there on the threads and posts.


    Take care

    It can take up to 13 weeks but most people receive it within a couple of weeks of winning their appeal or award

    They do have 28 days to appeal. That’s why it’s about 5 week, approximately.
    yes the backdated money is paid in separately.

    How long ago did you have your tribunal? Ive been told the average maximum date is 4-5 weeks. And im sure if DWP says it will be there tuesday it will. I dont think they’re allowed to say that if it isnt the case.
