    Hi @lauren987 - Welcome to the community & thank you for joining. Easier said than done, but try not to worry. After a tribunal the other party (in this case, the DWP) can appeal. This very, very rarely happens, as they would have to find an 'error in law.'  So, please enjoy your great PIP award, & congratulations! :)

    Hi and welcome to the community, its not very often you hear of the DWP appealing against as tribunal decision so try and not worry instead think of all the ways you spend the money and enjoy yourself

    You'll be fine, & I hope it's not too long until you get your monies. You will receive a letter confirming your tribunal win, & the amount of money owed. :)

    I dont think i need any help atm thanks unless there become any issues with them paying me. Hopefully not but when i wrote a letter to pip before i had a rude one back from the manager so im hoping i have a decent manager review the tribunal decision and pay what im owed with no stress. Its taken me since 2015 with reapplying to get pip so need the stress to be over asap.
