If the DWP appeal against a tribunal decision, can I appeal against the DWP?
Went for my pip appeal on 10 July 18 won the appeal, was told by the judge dwp did not want to appear on the day, judge told me won lower rate of daily living and enhanced for mobility I was so relieved and glad it was all over. The judge told me can take up to 2 weeks and it will be backdated. I contacted dwp 20 July to see if they had received the decision papers and was told after finally getting through to them waiting on the phone for 45 mins which is ridiculous, the lady said that they had the papers and she told me that dwp can overturn the decision, I felt really low thinking that it was all over do it is now on my mind if they appeal can I appeal against dwp, how can they treat people like this, can I ask how long do the dwp have to appeal the system is not fair please help me
