    Hi @shell63,

    It can take between six to eight weeks to find out the result of a PIP assessment. However, if you need to find out more about the status of your claim, then the contact number for ongoing claims is 0345 850 3322.

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, then please do get in touch!

    Thank-you liamodell..I am a bit worried as I have allready had one case and lost the tribunal so I can not understand why I have had another face to face meeting..I am in receipt of DLA and my doctor has given me sick notes saying I am not got to work..I had to go job center to sign on every week and had to cancel 3 times as I was feeling to rough to go there. So I am now waiting to see what happens I have not been asked to go back to the job center so not sure what is going on..Thank-you..

    Hi @shell63

    I'm sorry to hear that - that does sound rather confusing!

    @BenefitsTrainingCo, do you have anything to add?

    No @LiamO_Dell
