    Glad to hear. Just so that you know that the appeal would have been accepted by HMCTS (Tribunal) and not DWP. You can ring HMCTS and ask how long the waiting times are for your area. Do be aware though that the timescales are just a guide but it will give you some idea.

    I was told on the phone that it had to be accepted by the dwp as well as hmcts so I don't know if this is a new thing for them.i just really hope this is the last time I have to go through this process.once again thank you so much.

    That's not correct, it's accepted by HMCTS and not DWP. DWP will very likely oppose the appeal, which is usually what happens because they obviously don't think you qualify, which is why you were refused.

    But I can't understand then why the lady on the phone said that the appeal was accepted by the dwp as well as hmcts I guess the main thing is that it's on there system now.
