I had my PIP phone assessment at 1100 today and it finished at 1205. By 1326 I received a text from DWP saying they had received my written assessment. Thinking that's not a good sign 🤔  anyone else had a text in such a short space of time?

    Hello @Gillybean381

    Welcome to the community! :) Yes, we have had members who have had the written assessment that quick. They sometimes are typing everything up as they are on the phone with you.

    It doesn't mean anything other than the report was written so there's no need to keep hold of it any longer. Now it's returned a decision can take up to about 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.

    I would say it's a good sign because it means you are in the queue now so a decision will be made eventually.
    If you didn't get a text for 2 weeks then you might not even be in the queue yet
