After a year and a half of fighting to be awarded PIP and I’ve had to appeal, I’ve waited a long time for my appeal but I did win it nearly 2 weeks ago. I’m due to be backdated enhanced rate mobility from 2018 when am I going to get my payment they have my all my details I was told it shouldn’t be too long it’s already nearly been two weeks? And I worry alot unfortunately due to my depression  things not going right for myself even though I should be really happy that i won my appeal and will get money backdated which I really need I’m just waiting for something to go wrong... not sleeping due to the worry.
Has anyone else one on appeal have a backdated by about 63 weeks how long do you have to wait for your payment?

    Hi @Angelinvestigations. A huge congratulations on winning your appeal. I'm sorry it's still causing you some worry.
    It's very normal for it to take between 2 and 8 weeks for the DWP to put a tribunal decision into payment. For your own piece of mind you could give them a call as they may be able to give you a rough guide.

    I gave them a call a few days after I received my letter from the tribunal And we confirmed my bank details were right the woman didn’t give me a time frame on the phone I’ve had two people I know win saying they got it with the matter within days and another person said it took a few weeks I just hope it’s fast, Thank you very much for your reply
