My Wife has been claiming PIP for several years now after a lengthy court appeal on the original claim. Last Christmas we received a letter asking if there was any change of circumstances. We have just had a text from independent assessment services saying they are now reviewing the claim. When will we hear from them

    There's no timescales. Some hear back shortly after this and others continue to wait several months.
    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.

    It took ten months for them to actually arrange for a telephone assessment for my OH which will at last be in the coming week, then it will take 6-12 weeks for the DWP DM to decide, so its a long slow process I'm afraid.
