    Hi @Mercedes123 and welcome

    You should ring the DWP in a few days to make sure they have received the decision. It usually takes 5-8 weeks to put a tribunal decision into payment

    If the Tribunal placed you into the WRAG because your claim started after April 2017 then you won't be paid any extra money because there's no WRAG extra for claims made after this date.

    If you were placed into the Support Group then you'll receive backdated money.

    As you scored 15 points that doesn't sound like Support Group because being placed into this group isn't about scoring points. The Tribunal will send you a letter telling you which group you've been placed into so have a look when you receive it.

    As advised, it can take 8 weeks for DWP to send out the award letter.
