     You should check with the DWP that they have received a copy of the decision in a few days time.
    Usually a tribunal award is put into payment 6-8 weeks
    They do have an option to appeal the decision if an error in law has been made,
    To do so they will apply to the judge for a statement of reason and record of proceedings. It is unusual for the DWP to proceed further

    when you receive the award letter, look for the end date. Most tribunal decisions have an end date and you will have to make a new application usually they will ask you if you want to reapply 14 weeks before the end date
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste
