    Bobby123, is that right I can ring and find out my decision ? Because the waiting and anxiety associated with it is doing my head in .

    If you have had the text saying they have completed your claim you can ring them and see what award you have got

    Some people have a decision quite quickly after that text and others still wait quite a few weeks. You can ring them anytime to ask if a decision is made and if it has and they can see what it is they will tell you. If a decision hasn't been made they can't tell you.
    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.

    Yes, both are standard texts and letters and they have been known to send a text with an update and the same in a letter. Quite pointless really and all they cause is more anxiety.
