Responding to the Hearing Decision
You should receive a written decision from the hearing examiner with a result and an explanation of their decision. On the first page should be a description of the initial determination (if you are on appeal, this was usually "ineligible" or "indefinitely ineligible"), and then either "reversed" or "affirmed." There should then be a series of numbered paragraphs setting forth the applicable legal standard, and the examiner's findings of fact and conclusions.
If you win- meaning either an initial denial was reversed or an initial approval was upheld- congratulations! All you need to do is make sure your weekly certifications are up to date and that the DUA has the correct information about where to send the lump sum payment and any payments you may be entitled to going forward (most people set this up as direct deposit, so check your bank account).
If you lose, there are still some options available to you, which are described below.
