    There's nothing you can do. There's no timescales to any decisions. You can ring for a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision will be as they mostly go with that report. Other than that you have to wait, unfortunately.

    If a decision goes in your favour you'll have a new award date. If it doesn't your money will stop 4 weeks after the decision. Very risky putting in a change of circumstances. Good luck and hope it goes in your favour.

    I'm in the same situation. Just waiting.  For the first few weeks I was ok but now I'm getting stressed out about it. I'm so sorry your claim wasn't successful.  I hope you get more success on appeal.

    Its such a stressing process. I feel more depressed but going to ask for MR and they've sent a copy of assessor report.
