Got the decision two weeks ago to say standard for both, there was a typo with the dates so. Sent off an email for a correction after ringing them first . I read on one of the threads that you have to write to the court to accept the decision is this correct please? I thought I just had to wait till DWP ring for bank account details to check that what they have is correct.
regards lulu

    Hi Lulu when I done an appeal I’m sure I only contacted the court and DWP when I found out there was also a correction needing sorted, but definitely don’t think I had to accept it, I was obviously accepting it I had waited a year and a half lol hopefully someone will post with there experience, hopefully not much longer to wait, all in even counting the correction getting sorted, I waited just over 3 weeks, take care xx

    Oh definitely do, it’s such a long time I know people say but the longer it goes on the more money you get, well sometimes you just need it just know and want it sorted, good luck ??

    If your decision is reissued in corrected form and was originally a provisional decision i.e. based on the papers, then you need to write/email in to confirm your acceptance if the corrected provisional decision.

    If your decision was after a telephone hearing and was then corrected then the corrected version is final and you don’t need to do anything.

    Thanks @mikehughescq it was after telephone hearing that I received the letter the next day, then saw the typo mistake with the date so telephoned the court and they told me to email in for a correction which I did. Now I am just waiting . This is why I wanted to know whether I should now email to say I have accepted the decision of the standard rate .So you think not?

    Yes @Lulu_1949 there’s nothing to accept. Your decision was a final one.
