I had my assessent at home 3 weeks ago and haven't heard anything. When should I expect to hear if I got enough points or what, how does it work? Thanks

    You should phone DWP and ask for a copy of the assessment report which will give you a good idea of what your award is likely to be.  Assessment report should take 10+ days to arrive.  Award letters are taking longer now because of backlogs.  If you haven't received yours within a month of assessment date, phone DWP for an update.

    Hello and welcome,  as. Matilda say get your report by ringing DWP then when it arrives you should be able to work out what your award is by the points awarde by the accessor at your home accessment. You need 8 points for standard daily livening and standard mobility and 12 for enhanced in both caces. Black dots in the first box of a descriptors is No Points. Good luck.
