Heard nothing for 16 weeks

I'm in the Leicestershire area and my PIP claim has been with Capita for 16 weeks now. Is this normal? They've not sent me anything beyond a letter to say my form has been received by them from the DWP.

    @Mm98, it makes me so annoyed when people post questions like yours. As a new member I welcome you to the lovely scope cumunity who will help or advice or give an opinion on your situation. A lot of posts it is just a bit of common sense if in doubt or concerned, worried give them a call. Sixteen weeks seems a long time but calling for an update and progress of you claim or Face to Face acessment will put your mind at ease. Please keep posting I am sure once you have found your way round the site you will be able to give your views and opinions on many posts.

    That's not that long to be honest. There's not timescales, it really does depend on backlog in your area. If you're concerned then ring the assessments providers and they maybe able to tell you what's happening. Pointless ringing DWP at this stage because they won't be able to tell you anything.
