    Hi,

    Great news. You'll eventually be contacted by DWP but this can take 8 weeks from the date of the decision.

    This is because they have as much chance to appeal the decision as we do but to do this they must first find an error in law. To find this they have 1 month from the date of the decision to request the statement of reasons. If they decide to request this they'll contact you by letter.
