Hello hope you are all well. I had my positive decision on the past friday and over the phone was told I will receive a little over a thousand pound in back payments from last summer.
 I asked when will be paid and was told will be processed by a manager and paid on monday. Do you reckon it will be paid automatically in morning or I will have to call up again to prompt? 

Kind regards 
Hansel

    HI and welcome,

    I'm one of the community champions here on scope and i'm here to help and advise others.

    Great news! Unfortunately, it's impossible to predict anything. If you don't receive payment tomorrow then you'll need to ring UC when they open.

    I appreciate that. Even making this post or even finding scope has helped. Been alone throughout all this surviving on 150 pound a monyh cutting out luxuries followed necessities. I am excited not for the money but the ability to remedy all shortfalls that have occurred financially while waiting and not working. Thankyou Poppy
