I HAVE WON MY TRIBUNAL ON MNDAY THIS WEEK .
I WAS A NERVOUS RECK 
I WAS ASKED MANY QUESTION BY THE DOCTOR THAT WAS THERE, HE ASKED ME ABOUT MY MOBILITY IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. FELT LIKE HE WAS TRYING TO TRIP ME UP.
THE DISABILITY SPECIALIST JUST ASKED A FEW QUESTIONS.
I WAITED 20MINS FOR DECISION AND IT WAS THE BEST NEWS AFTER 12MTHS OF HELL

    Well done, well worth the wait.

    Out of curiosity, how long did the tribunal award you PIP.

    1 year backdated which means I have 1 year left so I could have to have a review which means They could stop it straightvaway😣😣😣

    Hey ange1967 well done it feels amazing doesn't it. I won my Tribunal for my 4year old daughter last week and like you after nearly a year of stress/tears/poverty and horrendous anxiety. I actually burst into tears when they told me that I had been successful. I NEVER cry in public but the relief was so huge. Does anyone know how long the DWP usually takes to repay the arrears? I got the arrears from tax credit ystrdy but have not heard anything from DLA.

    Great news, well done. It can take DWP 6 weeks to pay the backpay.

    Check your award notice. If you have an end date, rather than a review date then DWP will contact you 3 months before the award is due to end, to ask if you want to claim again. If you do then you'll need to ring them to ask you to send you more PIP2 forms. Sometimes Tribunals will give ends dates, rather then review dates.

    Based on that i would say that there won't be a review for you this year. They will contact you 3 months before the award is due to end, which will be approx September 2019. If there was a review due 1 year before then your award would clearly state this, as it doesn't i would expect there won't be.

    Thank you @poppy123456, I truly am relieved, I thought I’d have to go through it all again in nov this year.

    Much appreciated

    Yes, most people are unless you had to take it to Tribunal and then it could be different.

    I just got a call today about my award paper work . It’s being done and sent out now. I’ve no idea why it’s taken weeks to get the paperwork go this stage from tribunal. I can only assume there is a back log where I am. Shocking. Waiting on paperwork.
