    From my experience -
    I would suggest just ringing them on a regular basis to ask for an update. If they are deliberately trying to delay things, they wiil get fed up with you constantly contacting them and will give up a copy. You have the right to see it, especially as your award is based on it.

    It might be a good sign that the case manager has asked for more info though!

    If you are thinking of asking for a Mandatory Reconsideration, do bear in mind that there is a time limit for you to request this and though it would be good to see what the assesment says, so you are armed with knowledge, delaying your request based on not getting the assesment may not be sufficient grounds for missing the deadline - just a thought.

    Also please DO contact the Citizens Advice (CAB) as they have people who specifically deal with benefits cases and will hopefully help shoulder a lot of anxiety and stress.
