    Hello and welcome, the reason your PIP case has gone to Appeal is even thou you won your case the DWP have 28 days to appeal which look like what has happened in your case. I hope it goes well you will just have to wait for the out come.

    DWP have 28 days to request the statement of reasons, they do not have 28 days to appeal. They can only take it further if an error in law has been found in the statement of reasons. Asking for this doens't mean the error has been found. After a Tribunal win it can take 8 weeks to receive any backdated money owed. Nothing more you can do but wait.
