    Great news, well done. You just have to wait now to hear from DWP. It can take 6-8 weeks for them to pay you your backdated money. They do have 28 days to ask for the statement of reasons, if they wish to appeal the decision. To be able to do this they must find an error in law.

    Congratulations, great news and delighted to read the judge was able to reach conclusion without putting you through any more unnecessary trauma.
