This is probably akin to trying to divine the future in the tea leaves lol, but I had my telephone assessment for PIPs on the 5th of this month, got a TXT Msg yesterday saying they have not yet made a decision, but I don't need to do anything, now 24 hours later I get a letter saying they now have all the information they need to make a decision and will write to me with that decision in due course...

Does this mean a decision may be imminent or is that just wishful thinking lol??
I assume both are simply automated notifications, but does it mean much or just more of the same waiting :)

    Timescales are up to about 12 weeks after the report was returned. There’s no timescales after the we have all the information letter/text. 

    It’s like asking how long is a piece of string unfortunately. 
    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.

    Yeah I thought that was the case, I will just have to stay patient and try not to worry about it too much lol. On the whole, the DWP people I had to deal with so far have been pretty good, dare I say helpful even. But the long winded application does seem to be almost artificially dragged out LOL!

    Have to say thank you to all the staff/mods etc here, really, really helpful :)
