Hi all I'm in the process of waiting for work capability decision and its making me feel very stressed and anxious as don't know how long I'll be waiting. It's only been 9 days since my assessment

Was wondering if you could please tell me when your assessments were and when you recieved your decision for LCWRA. Just so I can get a rough idea of how long others have had to wait. 

I'm aware I could be waiting a few months for a decision but would be grateful to hear your responses.

Thanks

    I know you want actual timescales from others but based on so many other threads it can be anything from a few days to 12 weeks, once the assessment report is 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.

    Hi @ronaldo89 I totally get your anxiety here, the waiting is the worst part. 
    As Poppy has said, it's kind of like asking "How long is a piece of string?" as the times can vary hugely between people. My wait after the WCA was around 6 weeks I believe? I'll be keeping everything crossed for you. :)
