    Hi @tanyaob1, welcome to the community. I've edited your personal details out of your letter just to keep you safe :)

    Decisions can take a while and it can be a really stressful time, but I hope you're not waiting too long and you get the result you're hoping for! If you're looking for distractions, coffee lounge can be a good shout, or just take a look around and join in wherever you fancy.

    I'll move your post over to our PIP section in case you have any more questions about your claim. We've got some lovely members so I'm sure they'll make you feel welcome in no time :)

    That's a standard letter sent to a lot of people. If you gave a mobile number to them then you may also receive the same as a text message. Neither of them mean anything more than it states. 

    Timescales for decisions are up to about 12 weeks after the report was returned. 
    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.
