    It can take anything up to 8 weeks, sometimes longer to pay what they owe you and to put your award into payment.

    DWP have the same chance you do to appeal the decision but before doing this they must first request the statement of reasons within one month of the date of the decision. Once they receive that they need to find the error in law before they can appeal.
    They sometimes request this but rarely appeal it. If they request it, it doesn't mean they are appealing the decision.
