    I've had the call almost 3months now and I'm still waiting so it's definitely possible it takes longer than 8 weeks but I do hope you get yours next week shanoo

    Thanks for your update @jacktiddles that's positive news, I hope you're able to relax and enjoy the weekend now :) 

    And I'm pleased to hear things are moving forward for you as well @Shanoo, and that you've found the community helpful. 

    It's a shame to hear you've had such a long wait @mrcorleone2021, it might be worth chasing up if you're able to, have you been managing okay in the meantime?

    Hi guys

    New here and just wanted to see if you were new claims or if you currently received pip and appeal a change of circumstances.

    I first received pip for daily living standard only then due to a change in my health reclaimed and also was awarded mobility at standard I appealed and tribunal was on 7th. Heard last week I've won being backdated to may 2021 to receive enhanced mobility but not heard from dwp yet

    After a Tribunal win it can take anything up to 8 weeks to receive any money owed.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    I have received a letter from the tribunal overturning the DWP decision for PIP. I applied 3 August 2021 the appeal was on the 24 October 2022. So 14.5 months to get someone to believe me. I haven’t heard anything from DWP yet, I’m sure they do it on purpose to make our health, especially mental health worse. Although it is stressful it’s worth persevering. I just hope I don’t have to wait 8+ weeks to receive my payments.

    Hi everyone 

    just a quick question after you have won your tribunal how long does it take dwp to contact  you ?

    calcotti Community member Posts: 10,010 Disability Gamechanger
    Can take a couple of months.
    Information I post is for England unless otherwise stated. Rules may be different in other parts of UK.

    Seems  long, so it takes two months for them to contact you then after that another eight weeks to receive your money?

    It's up to 2 months, sometimes longer. Lots of people are contacted within a couple of weeks.
    Remember they have the same chance we do to appeal the decision but they can't do this without first requesting the statement of reasons. Once they receive this they need to find an error in law before they can take it any further. They sometimes request it but rarely appeal it and if they request it, it doesn't mean they are appealing.
    If they request it, it can delay them putting your award into payment and paying what they owe you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.

    Hi really hoping someone can help! I received my decision from my tribunal today to say I have been awarded standard mobility. Since requesting the appeal my health has gotten significantly worse. Can I do a change of circumstances or do I need to start a new claim?
    thankyou.
