    Default I've won DLA Tribunal what happens with payments now?

    Hi I originally applied for DLA for my son in Aug 09, I was turned down and appealed had Tribunal on 30/09/2011 and won we were awarded middle rate car and lower mobility, I was just wondering if anyone can help me work out how much back pay I would receive? x I phoned them today and got nowhere. My mum won an appeal 3 years ago and DLA dragged their feet in working out her backpay etc I eventually lost my rag and demanded it was sorted and they did. I think this is going the same was as they said they haven't received anything from the tibunal yet I was just wondering also if I phone them and ask to be put through to the section dealing with it which section do I ask for? Many Thanks in advance x x x

    I don't know if you know this; but the decision is looked at by DWP before you get the money. This means it can take a while.

    Yes I heard is it likely that they would have a problem? x I heard they could only challenge it if there was a legal problem not if they don't agree with decision? Is this right?

    Yes; but that's very unlikely to happen.

    Not sure if it is o any help but I won my ESA tribunal on 09/09/2011 and I have since been waiting like you for news. I phoned them and was told it is going through the process off a decision maker to work out my group, backpay and how much I am entitled to...hang in there And they will do it. If you don't mind me asking but did you call them before and complain about the process? And if you did did it hurry the process? I don't feel like me calling is doing anything

    Thank goodness Will it really be 2 years backpay? When I worked it out it was a lot of money!!! Also I receive tax credits (working and child) I informed them as I was told they would go up, will this also be backdated from the original claim?

    The DLA backpay is from the date the claim was put in.

    Well I phone on Friday and they still haven't received the papers from the tribunal then I was told that if the descision maked disagrees with the outcome it will be disallowed I told her she was wrong it was only if there was a discrepancy or a legal issue and she said no I was misinformed and she was right!!! I phoned the benefits helpline nearly in tears where he confirmed I was in fact .................. right

    The benefits helpline is right - it's only errors of law which mean it can be overturned.

    It can take up to 6 weeks for the backpay to be issued. You can't get 'put through' to a section anymore, because the enquiry lines are now on a virtual call centre system and calls cannot be transferred to the Benefit Centre. What you can do though, is ask for a call back from the DLA appeals section. If there is an issue with them getting the tribunal notification, will they accept you faxing across your notification?

    My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

    Please do not seek, offer or produce advice on a consumer issue via private message; it is against forum rules to advise via private message, therefore pm's requesting private advice will not receive a response.
