Disability Allowance Payment Question

Hi All, recently I was awarded disability allowance after an appeal (awarded at the end of July). To date, I have heard nothing more as to when the first payment will be made. Does anyone know what the time frame is after it has been awarded to when the first payment is actually made?

I should mention, I've called the Disability section on a few occasions, and been on hold waiting to speak with someone, for over half an hour each time with no reply.

Thanks.

Firstly you will get your bus pass in the post and very shortly after that your first payment will be issued including any back pay owed to you.

Thanks for your reply Paddy, would you know what kind of time frame after the letter of having it awarded, to getting the travel pass and then first payment?

If I remember correctly mine came very quickly, I was notified first by phone call and within 2 weeks the bus pass and shortly after that approx 1 week I got my payment including all arrears owed to me.
