Been awarded PIP

Hi all, its me again.  Following my Tribunal for PIP Appeal on Friday, I've been awarded PIP.  YEAH!!  Got Mobility, didn't get daily living, but I'm pleased with how it all went.  A Big thank you to you all for your comments, you all were right I had no need for a representative, it was good to have the support and guidance of this really good team https://www.thepsu.org/ my support worker and all you lovely people on this community sharing your thoughts and tips, it certainly helped, to avoid getting into the pitfall of being asked to pay out £400 for a representative I did not need.  


Just need to ask, what happens next? How soon will I receive the payment?
