    They do sometimes request the statement of reasons but it doesn't mean they will appeal the decision. They can't appeal without finding the error in law. As far as i know, they rarely appeal the decision but requesting the SOR can delay receiving backdated money. Hopefully you won't be waiting too much longer than you already have. There's nothing more you can do but wait.
