Hi there
i was successful in having my sons DLA decision overturned last Weds after a long 9 month wait. Anyone know when we are likely to receive payment? We have had all the bank details etc checked

    HI and welcome,

    Great news! Usually it's not long once they've asked for bank details. Once payment is released it can take 3-5 working days to go into your bank. Only DWP can tell you exactly when to expect payment.

    ah thank you for the reply.
    DWP were very vague as to when to expect the payment, hence me asking. 
    I’ve waited since last July so a few more days/weeks won’t hurt 😊

    Hi @kellyellis - & welcome to the community. I'm pleased to read you have been successful with your son's DLA, & hope it's not too long until you receive the back payment. Please do say if we can help in any other way.
