    HI,

    No one will be able to tell you that because no one knows how your conditions affect you or anything about your case.

    You may not have a decision on the day, if this happens it doesn't mean anything other than a decision couldn't be made and they will send a you a decision letter within 3 weeks.

    Good luck.

    Hi @naz786.... I hope I can give you some hope! They are really nice. My son spoke to a panel of three, they were all very nice , put him at ease . They will ask you how you cope with your condition, how it affects you. Just be honest and explain the best you can . Good luck x

    Hi @naz786. Hi just want to wish you well, I had my appeal 2 weeks ago, I got upset a few times and the panel were really nice telling me to take my time putting me at ease, have a drink of water beside you and all your appeal papers and make a few notes that you might want to say at the end. I got a letter 2 days after my appeal, and my backdated money was in the bank after just a week and a half, although some people’s have taken longer. Good luck and would be nice to hear how you get on.

    It's not a video call, it's a telephone call.

  • Lou67Lou67 Member Posts: 812 Pioneering
    Aww great news I’m so pleased for you, at last you will be able to relax and I’m sure you’ll get a decent nights sleep tonight, after my appeal a few weeks ago I got my backdated money after a week and a half, I know waiting times can very but I hope you don’t wait to long, again well done 😊
  • naz786naz786 Member Posts: 62 Connected
    Thanks lou it's a massive relief when do they pay the monthly payment 
  • naz786naz786 Member Posts: 62 Connected
    Or when did they pay you your monthly payment 
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    That's great news! Thanks for the update. After a Tribunal win it can take 2-8 weeks, sometimes longer to receive backdated money and about the same time to put your award into payment. Most likely after Christmas now.

    Hi Naz, you’ll probably receive your backdated money before you receive a letter, when you receive your letter it’ll tell you what date your first months money is due, it’ll probably be cpl weeks after your back payment goes in. You’ll hopefully be sorted for Xmas, good night and sleep well. 
  • naz786naz786 Member Posts: 62 Connected
    Thanks love you look after yourself xxx

    Hi all still waiting on my money it's been 9 day's since I won my tribunal hearing 
  • poppy123456poppy123456 Member Posts: 22,218 Disability Gamechanger
    That's really not long at all. It can be anything from 2-8 weeks sometimes longer but really there's no timescales. There's nothing more you can do but wait.

    I waited about 2 weeks before I got mine. I got my letter the next day after I went to the Tribunal. When you get it you will be happy -well done as others have said :)

    Hi i received a text message last week from pip to ring them so I got worried I spoke to my respersentive i told him i received a text message from pip and i was worried he said to me not to worry it's probably just asking you to confirm bank details just in case they where changed and that's wat exactly happened and they asked me couple of questions thank god that was a relief 
  • Girl_No1Girl_No1 Member Posts: 47 Courageous
    @naz786  I think we're all pretty much the same, the stress/worry when we receive a call or a (much-dreaded) brown envelope! 

    Glad to hear it turned out be nothing you needed to get stressed about.   :)

    Hi baz I had mine on the 14th and I apply in september 2019 and was given zero point so for everything and then appeal and I ended up getting the same does anyone agree with me that something is being done wrong either the assements as the dwp opposes my case and ask to have it set aside thankfully the tribunals denied their appeal
