    Hi @xraylia1 welcome to the community! 

    Congratulations on winning your tribunal! In answer to your question I am unsure however some of our community members will know and will be in contact with you soon.

    Please let us know if we can help you further :)

    Hi,

    You'll need to continue to send in the fit notes until you hear from DWP. As you only won your Tribunal last week then it can take 8 weeks for DWP to pay any backdated money and slightly longer to be placed into the group.
