    HI and welcome,

    Great news. It can take between 2-8 weeks sometimes longer to receive backdated money and about the same time to put an award into payment.

    This is because DWP have the same chance we do to appeal the decision but to do this they must first ask for the statement of reasons and they have 1 month to request this. Once they receive it they must find the error in law before they can appeal the decision.

    They sometimes request the statement of reasons but rarely appeal it. If they request it then it will delay you receiving backdated money and also delay putting your award into payment.

    All you can do is wait but hopefully not much longer. DWP will contact you before paying what they owe you.

    Hi @angheav256 and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you.  Congratulations on winning your PIP appeal!  It is nice to hear positive news regarding PIP.  I hope you don't have to wait too long on your backdated  payment and wish you well.  If there is anything we can help/support you with then please just ask.  All the best.  :smile:

    Hi Yes it is just a lottery how quick you get the back dated money, it depends on the back log in your area and also who the case manager is and their workload. They may have had a holiday or some time off during this time. I hope you are not waiting too much longer

    Yes that's good. I only won my appeal yesterday so I know I will also be waiting a while. Although I have seen some people have it within a week and some get the payment before the letter. Just for reference I will also update this post when I get my back pay. I had someone from the DWP at my Tribunal so I hope they don't appeal it as there wouldn't be much point.

    @bekindalways one of the most asked questions on an internet forum is "how long does it take or when will the decision be made" When people ask those questions they aren't doing any harm in my opinion. Naturally if someone's had a Tribunal win they are going to want some idea how long it takes to receive the money that's owed to them.
