    Hi there 

    There are no fixed timescales they need to calculate the payment and get it authorised then needs to clear into your account 

    Just have to keep checking your account 
    I have professional experience in HR within public,  private, and charity sectors.  If I can't help I will

    I don't know if all dwp benefits are the same but with esa they send letter with the amount you will be getting and when etc so you will probably receive a letter in a few days with all the information in it? But I have heard several times on here people get a payment before a decision letter so as @janer1967 says keep an eye on your bank account :smile: glad you got a yes nice to start the day with some good news! Take care and congrats!
