    If they couldn't see it that would be why they couldn't tell you.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Hi 

    They do sometimes tell you over the phone depends whi you speak to luck of the draw 

    Surprised they said they would call you though you are normally informed by letter 

    It takes 24 hours for their system to update with the decision so that will be why she couldn't see it

    It can take a while for back pay but in some cases they have had the money before the letter 

    Payments should start in next pay after decision if you are entitled
