    If this was a paper hearing then under the current emergency rules you have an award unless you or DWP object. If either object you will then proceed to a telephone hearing so you effectively get a second bite of the cherry.

    Hi @paulb123 I've had same. I'm now 4 weeks last the 28 days to respond. Dwp didn't respond but I didn't expect them too. Are you still awaiting further info from the courts? Cause I've had nothing as yet

    Hi buddy, thanks for getting back to me. Believe it or not this morning I woke up to a email saying a decision has been made and will receive it within 7 days.

    I'm confident the judge won't of changed their mind. Cause I'd expect a face to face or another direction if that was the case and my representative  said similar.

    Let me know how you get on 😬

    Its backdated from the day you applied for pip if its a new claim or if it was existing claim then it would be backdated from when they removed the reward from you.

  • katho31katho31 Member - under moderation Posts: 701 Pioneering
    made up for you  :), it differs, i got mine within 10 days
  • janer1967janer1967 Community champion Posts: 6,062 Disability Gamechanger
    Hi Congratulations to you both. Back dated money can take anything up to about 8 weeks some are quicker .

    You should get a letter from DWP detailing your award and details of payment, they may also call you to ask a few questions eg is your bank account the same, have you had a stay in hospital, then it isnt long till you will get your backdated monry

    I got a phone call yesterday to confirm my bank account and stuff. So it only took them 2 days which is fast! She said up to 10 working days for payment to process. Hopefully its quick for you to.

    Well done by the way. Nice to see things happening fast. Its a shame a global pandemic had to make things faster.

    Hi, so basically you have to write to the courts or email them and either accept the provisional decision or reject it. Same for DWP. If one of you disagrees then it goes to f2f appeal. If you agree but DWP don't reply then DWP surrender the right to appeal. If both of you don't reply then after 28 days it becomes a final decision.

    Just note that although it states 28 days please be prepared to wait double that for the courts to finalise the decision. I waited the 28 days and then it took another month before the court finalised it.

    So at the minute you've got no award but if you and DWP agree or if you agree but DWP don't reply then it gets made into a final decision after 28 days.

    Yh so I have agreed so know I just have to wait then yh hopefully will go my way then I'll ring the courts in 3weeks see if thats the case nice one pal 
  • darrylg94darrylg94 Member Posts: 11 Connected
    @kurt2920

    I'd email the courts or ring 1 week after the 28 days from the date the letter was posted. The court gives a grace of 7 days late due to postal delays with the current situation.

    For me it took 52 days for the provisional decision to be made to final. Then DWP was fast with the payment and paid my backpay after 5 days. This is probably cause they knew they didn't reply but didn't want to reply.

    Let us know how it goes for you.

    Good luck

    Yh I received it last week so give or take 3/4 weeks I did email and said I agreed as well as rang them and agreed hopefully then should all be done for end of next month and yes I was awarded it from June last year so if this al goes my way then after say the 28days would pip ring me after its bin made a finial decision or would I ring them to sort that hopefully be as quickly as possible and will do pal thanks for the advice
  • darrylg94darrylg94 Member Posts: 11 Connected
    @kurt2920 wait for the final decision to be received by you before ringing DWP. DWP won't act on a provisional decision even when it's exceeded 28days. All in all you'll be waiting around 2 months from now before recieving a final decision notice and a further wait for backpayment.
  • kurt2920kurt2920 Member Posts: 14 Listener
    Yh pal I would wait until I know that's their 1st thanks pal 
  • paulb123paulb123 Member Posts: 14 Listener
