How long after tribunal wind and dwp asking the relevant questions and confirming your bank details did you wait before receiving back pay / payment ? I rang today and they said I will receive a payment before a letter but I’m a bit confused ....   Thanks !

    Hello @gadele

    Welcome to the community, how are you today? 

    Congratulations on the tribunal win. I don't think there's a specific amount of time that you should expect to wait, but hopefully it won't be too long. 

    Often we hear of people receiving a payment in their bank account, and then the letter arrives not long after. So if you suddenly see something being paid into your bank account I wouldn't worry, and just bide your time for the confirmation letter which I'm sure will be along.

    thank you!  I’m looking to have adaptations made so would be really handy to know a semi sort of useful timescale to get things put in motion ...

    I would imagine if the DWP have contacted you to confirm banking details that they are at least in the process of releasing your payment, however I don't think anyone can give you a timescale. Do keep checking the bank account because the money will more than likely appear there before the letter arrives on the door mat.
