    Altho it can take time to get through, I'd suggest ringing again. Most likely a different person will answer & agree to sending out the assessor's report for you.
    However, sometimes it's better to just wait for your decision letter as the assessor's report is just a recommendation.

    If the report has been returned to DWP they will send it to you before the decision is made if you ask. However, there are some people from the call centre who will refuse to send it. You can ring back to speak to someone else who may agree to send it.

    Please also remember that the report is just a recommendation, it's not the decision. It can also cause even more anxiety than you may already be experiencing so it's not always a good idea to request it.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
