    It doesn’t mean anything other than they probably haven’t received the report.

    Sometimes reports are chosen at random for an audit. It’s nothing to worry about and means they are checking the assessor did their job correctly. Once it’s completed they will return it to DWP.

    Once it’s returned a decision can take up to 12 weeks.
    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.

    Hi @jan6122 I too had my assessment on the 28th of June, may I ask when you first applied? It’s such a long process isn’t it 🙈 x

    I had a telephone assessment today and was told that DWP will probably decide in about 6 weeks, so not expecting to hear anything for a while.

    Yes, or longer. It's taken just over a year to get to this point.
    The crazy thing is, since my last award, which was enhanced on Care and Mobility, I've had a Wet Room and Stairlift fitted (Via SS/OT) and GP has upped my pain meds and given me meds for anxiety, so I'm not sure how that suggests my health and mobility may have improved.

    Hi all, update, as of today 10/7 i still haven't received the text from dwp saying they had recieved my report to make a decision ( my assessment 28/6) the lovely lady at dwp said not to worry that she will chase this up for me, said its probably due to back log.

    Your report could have been chosen for audit. If it has it’s nothing to worry about. They are just checking the assessor did their job correctly. It just delays the report being returned.
