    It sounds like the Tribunal made an error somewhere and DWP can't put your award into payment until that error is corrected. Sometimes it happens with a date of the award, if a date is incorrect DWP can't put an award into payment. The reason they can't do this is because it's an award made by a Tribunal and the law states that the decision can't be changed and they must pay the money owed, for the dates stated.

    The usually timescales for backdated money is about 8 weeks after a Tribunal win and for you it's only been just over a couple of weeks. Hopefully HMCTS won't be too long responding to the letter from DWP and then DWP will put the award into payment until then unfortunately, all you can do is sit and wait.
