    Hi @lindadenise, and welcome!

    Unfortunately our community members have experienced varying wait times for their decisions, often it can take 6-8 weeks but sometimes more. You can contact the DWP to ask for an update on your application, though. Hope this helps, and keep us updated- we'll advise where we can!
