    No, DWP haven't appealed any decision. What they've done is requested the statement of reasons and record of proceedings. To appeal the decision they must find the error in law once they receive both of these. If the error in law isn't found they can't appeal the decision.

    There's no timescales how long it will take to receive both of these because the judge doesn't write either of them unless they are requested. Once they are requested the judge will write them when they have the time to do so but how long this will take is anyones guess.

    Once both of those have bee written and sent DWP will then have a further 1 month to request the appeal.

    It's rare for DWP to appeal any decision but unfortunately, in the meantime there's nothing more at all you can do but wait.

    I must admit DWP were extremely quick in requesting these.
