OK, to recap then. you have won your tribunal, but did they state at the time your payments would be re-instated. If they did, then they will be.


Please note that although my advice is offered, you should consult your legal representative before taking ANY action.

 

 

have a nice day !!

Hi

If you have had your benefits reinstated they should start paying you from the date the tribunral was reinstated, any back pay owed to you normally follows within a few weeks at most.

 

If they have not started paying you, you need to contact your local county council benefits advice centre, normally found within your local authority websit, they can give free sound advice and can advise you on how to proceed & if need be but you in touch with your local Law Centre there solictor services are also free.

 

It sounds to me you really need some proffesional advice and maybe representation right now.

 

hope this is of use to you - all the best j :)

Yes, what they have asked for is called a "statement of reasons" and extends their time limit for appealing to the commisioner by 14 days. They can only appeal to the commisioner on a point of law. They will have asked for the statement of reasons so they can look in detail at why the tribunal found in your favour. If they feel the tribunal have made a mistake in applying the law they can apply to the first tier for permission to appeal. to the upper tribunal. If they are refused by the first tier for permission to appeal, they can then apply directly to the upper tribunal for permission to appeal.

 

If they do appeal, the tribunals service will inform you of this and ask if you have representation and if you have any comments in regard to the appeal.


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.
