Hi, dwp received my pip change of circumstances for health deterioration on 7/10/22, I had tel assessment on 29/12/22. Still not heard anything. Fobbed off with ring back two weeks, then nothing happens.

same with uc wca had tel assessment 7/10/22 nothing heard, 2 week fob off. 

Any ideas on current processing times

    Once the assessment report is returned to DWP for both benefits a decision can take up to 12 weeks, sometimes longer.

    That sounds frustrating @jules5943. Have you been able to contact the DWP about this yet?  :)

    As soon as a decision has been made regarding your Work Capability Assessment you will be notified via your journal. It is currently with a decision maker but I am unable to tell you how long it will be until a decision is made

    I have been in contact via phone to universal credit and journal plus phoned pip, health advisory service and I just get the same response. As above. 
    I’ve deteriorated more since I put the change of circumstances and am now waiting for my results of mri to see if I got ms. Everything’s waiting, when it’s scary times and need some clarification.
