PIP How long until i hear from them

dondon24 Community member Posts: 1 Listener
Hi I applied for PIP on the 11th Dec 2023 and had a phone assessment done on in February. I have just today uploaded my nerve testing report that I have had done since the the assessment. How long do i need to wait to hear something back...bearing in mind I started this claim in December 2023

    Once the assessment report is 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.

    Heya @dondon24 and welcome to the community! 

    I'm glad to see Poppy has already answered your query, but I just wanted to pop in and say hello. :) 
    As Poppy has said, there can be quite the wait after your assessment, but they will keep you updated once something updates.
