    HI and welcome,

    Great news. It can take 2-8 weeks to receive backdated money but as they've asked for bank details hopefully it won't be too long but you'll need to ring DWP to ask them because only they can tell you when to expect payment into your bank.

    You're welcome,

    It's the same for all Tribunal decisions. There's really no timescales.

    As i advised, as they've asked for bank details it's likely you'll receive payment soon but you can still ring to ask when this will be and they will tell you. Usually payment is received before the letter.

    Hi @donna214 - Welcome to the community. I'm pleased to read the tribunal was successful & hope it's not too long until you receive the backdated money. Poppy has given great advice which I'm sure you'll have found helpful.
