    Hello @paul1964 and a warm welcome to the community. Good to have you with us.
    Not a benefits advisor, I can't really answer your question, but we do have people here who will, I am sure, be able to help.
    Please bear with us and if you haven't been contacted by someone more helpful by the same time tomorrow, could you perhaps make a brief post here quoting my tag @JennysDad so that I can look further into it for you?
    I know the wait must be making you anxious and would like to get things resolved for you if we can.
    Warmest best wishes

    I am Rian from Scope Support to Work, unfortunately the average process of the assessments can take up to  8 months; however I have good word from friends work in the DWP and it has been known to take up to 12 months due to the back log of assessments needing decisions.
