After over 18 months of trying to get on PIP after my DLA ended and getting turned down and losing the appeal, I reapplied for PIP and again got turned down but I appealed it again and I am delighted to say that recently at my tribunal I finally won the appeal. :)

The judge and panel were a lot friendlier and understanding than the last bunch last year who were horrible.

I have been awarded standard rate daily living allowance for 2 years. However, since the time I had to wait for the appeal to be processed I have only 11 months left on PIP.

I was wondering if anyone knew how long it will take the DWP to start my payments after winning the appeal at the tribunal?

I think it could be four or five weeks. But so glad you’ve got it sorted. It must be a weight off your mind. I would say when reapplying mention about the difficulties you went thru and won thru appeal and maybe they will look a bit more kindly
