    Copy of the summary decision will have gone to the DWP either via any Presenting Officer who attended, or, through the post. DWP then need to decide whether they want a statement of reasons and record of proceedings with a view to a further appeal to the Upper Tribunal. In theory they have the same month you have to ask for this. In practice, unless there's a massive delay in asking, they are usually allowed to request late. 

    If they decide to not request then payment is processed relatively quickly. They will not usually tell you whether they have made a request for an SoR/RoP. So, just a case of sit sight and, if nothing's happened within the next five or six weeks, it's time to start asking questions.

    Thankyou for taking the time to reply, I really appreciate your response. I thought it would take much longer (even if they decide not to challenge the decision) so I am relieved it won't take months!
    Thank you T

    Usually barring SOR etc DWP will put a tribunal decision into payment 5-8 weeks.
    It is worth ringing DWP to make sure they have received the notification as they do sometimes mislay them

    The DWP have a month to request the SOR, BUT the judge is under no time limit to respond which can account for delays

    They have very clear time limits for a response. The volume of requests and other factors may mitigate against that though.

    Absolutely shocked and very pleased to say that I have had a letter from DOW today stating that they are going to pay what the tribunal have stated, what a relief. They have also extended the award. Thankyou all for your response
