    Hi Mick

    It usually takes DWP 5-8 weeks to put a tribunal decision into payment

    Hi @mickoverend62, and a warm welcome to the community! 

    I'm sorry to hear about your experiences. It must have been really frustrating, but that's great news about your successful tribunal. As CR says, it can take 5-8 weeks for a decision to be put into payment. Fingers crossed things move forwards for you soon!
