Pip tribunal 2019

nay1993nay1993 Member Posts: 20 Listener
Hi, just wondering if anyone can help with me questions. I had my pip tribunal today and won my pip back. I was told I would receive the same rate as before but there was no mention from the tribunal of when my monthly payments would start or if I was going to receive a backpay from my pip being stopped last August. I was told I would be awarded pip until 2021 and given a letter or confirmation. I then went so would somebody please be able to tell me or I will receive backpay from when my pip stopped and when will my monthly payments start again.

    Hi,

    Great news on the Tribunal win!

    You will receive backdated payments from the date your PIP stopped. It takes 8 weeks to receive backdated money and about the same time to put your award into payment.

    Hi,

    It can take 8 weeks to receive backdated money after a Tribunal win. See your other thread here, where your question was previously answered. https://community.scope.org.uk/discussion/65416/pip#latest

    I’m not sure if the letter i received at the tribunal is an award letter or not but it says on it that I won my tribunal on the 31/10/2019 and I’m entitled to the daily living components at the standard rate from the 12/08/2018 from when it stopped to the 11/08/2021. Ive been reading up and everyones payments are different some have been paid 3 weeks after some 6 some longer so suppose it just depends on the time of year and how busy they are

    Hi nay1993 
    Just got off the phone & they have said that they haven't received any correspondence as yet for the tribunal service but when they did it can take upto 4 weeks for them to action it then I'll receive a letter from them saying if they owe me any back pay & when it's going to be paid into my account as said to try again at end of next week to see if they have received it will keep you updated then
  • nay1993nay1993 Member Posts: 20 Listener
    Thanks for getting back to me, I rang them this morning and they said they received my notes from the tribunal service the very next day but they have no other information as of yet so to give them a ring in around 3 week time for an update unless I hear from them before this time so I’m sure we’ll both hear something from them by the end of the month 
  • KelMarieKelMarie Member Posts: 17 Connected
    Hopefully we both will 
  • KelMarieKelMarie Member Posts: 17 Connected
    Nay1993 don't know why just something telling me to phone again today & I'm glad I did as when they answered they told me that the case manager had some questions before they can continue with it now been told ishould hear about payment in two weeks or less questions where
    1. have you been in hospital or a care home since your payments ended
    2. Have you been aboard for so much time since your payment ended 
    3. Have you been in prison since your payment ended 
    As these may affect the amount they owe

    Good job you rang them.. Well sounds like good news! Did they confirm your bank details? 
    Im going to go give them a ring now and see if they have any news for me. What shall I say? And do I ask to speak to a manager? 
  • nay1993nay1993 Member Posts: 20 Listener
    I have just spoken to them they have just told me the same thing really that it can take weeks and they also said that we basically have to wait the 28days because like we can appeal them and have done they have the option to do the same with us and have 28 days. So I’m going to give them a call at the end of the month if ive not heard anything. 
  • nay1993nay1993 Member Posts: 20 Listener
    I will keep you updated 
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    DWP do have the same rights we do to appeal the decision but before they can do this they must request the statement of reasons and record of proceedings and they have 1 month from the date of the decision to do this. Once they receive this they must find an error in law before they can appeal the decision. Requesting the statement of reasons doesn't mean they are appealing the decision. They sometimes request this but rarely appeal it. If it's requested it will delay paying backdated money and they will contact you if it's requested.

    @KelMarie I finally got an update today I called them and they said they needed to ask me a few questions to speed up the process so I didn’t have to wait for the questions in the post. They asked me the same as they asked you about stays in hospital\prison etc  and asked for my bank details and said a decision would be  out in the post within 2/3 weeks 

    Have you had a letter from them yet?
  • KelMarieKelMarie Member Posts: 17 Connected
    Hi nay1993 sorry only just seen this message I rung them again yesterday & I was told my back payment would be in my account on the 19th November then I'll get my first payment on the 27th November then every 4 weeks from then on hope you got your soon too

    Well that’s great news! There has been nothing back from them yet with my claim. They said to expect a letter out in the post in the next 2/3weeks last week with a decision on appeal or payments. Have they waited the full 28days with your claim? 

    @KelMarie
  • nay1993nay1993 Member Posts: 20 Listener
    @KelMarie finally my payments have been processed and will take 5 working days.
