    Yes it is normal. It’s likely your report is in audit which simply means the Assessment Provider is checking the quality of your report, this process may take up to 4 weeks. Once DWP have your report back you should expect a decision within 2-12 weeks.

    Hi @nnat2209 and welcome to our online community, how's your Thursday going?

    I can see you've been reassured that not receiving a text update is nothing to worry about. I'm glad you reached out to ask to avoid any unnecessary worry  :)

    We wish you all the best for a successful outcome, and in the meantime - I've renamed and moved your thread to our PIP, DLA and AA category to help others find it and respond.

    Best wishes and you know where we are if you need any help.

    I think each case seems to be different. I had my assessment Monday just gone via phone and 830am next day I got a text to say the dwp had received the assessment and I had to allow upto 8 weeks for a decision.
    however, I know people who haven’t had a text at all or have had it two weeks later, so I wouldn’t worry at all.
