Granted permission to appeal at Upper Tribunal for PIP decision

My application to move from DLA to PIP was in January 2017.  I was turned down by DWP, I went through the chanels and eventually had a First Tier tribunal hearing on 7th March 2018.

I had DLA hrm and lrc. This was reduced at the tribunal to no points on PIP. I appealed the decision and was refused. I asked to apply to the Upper Tier tribunal and was refused.

I applied to the Upper Tier tribunal for permission to appeal and  I received the letter from the Upper Tier tribunal granting permission to appeal the decision today.

The Upper Tribunal have stated that the ''First Tier tribunal erred materially in law in the decision to which it came on 7th March 2018'' They cited several case law cases.

They have asked DWP to comment within one month on the points the Judge has made.  Can someone advise me what will happen next?

Thank you
