    Timescales for decisions are up to about 12 weeks after the assessment report is returned to DWP. Sometimes they send a text if there's an award but not always. They do not send texts with refusals. You will recieve the decision letter in the post regardless of what that decision is.
    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.
