    I won my appeal and received new award letter and arrears three weeks later.  You'll probably hear from DWP after three weeks either with new award letter or letter stating they are going to appeal.  However, if you receive one of the latter, don't worry.  DWP send out a standard letter if they are thinking of appealing but they have to find an error of law in order to appeal - and it is rare for the first tier to make errors of law.

    Good Luck Lilley. I second what @Matilda says, it has to be on a point of law. What gets me is though is why they have to put people through all the extra stress by going on about it. Anything else I wish to say about them would be deleted if I were to type it here lol

    @Justice and @lilley1

    When I came out of tribunal hearing room into waiting room while they made their decision, there was a DWP rep waiting to be called into another hearing.  At first I assumed she was an appellant and asked her if she was waiting to be interviewed:  she didn't look too pleased at being mistaken for one of us rather than for one of them ;).
