Assessors Report Recieved

zuchon1975 Member Posts: 13 Connected

I recieved a copy of my report today and I’ve be given 8 points for Living and 12 points for mobility. My F2F at home was on the 17th of August I haven’t had a letter from the DWP yet (just a text to say they’d recieved the report). I was wondering how long does it usually take from the DWP receiving the report to them writing to you with their decision?

Have to say up to this point (and hopefully going forward) the process has been straightforward and the Assessor who came to the house was nice and professional and the report she has produced is a factual true reflection of her visit.

Only thing I was shocked about was they didn’t even want to look at my medical reports.

    There's no timescales, it depends on backlog in your area. They mostly go with the report, it's rare to go against it. Hopefully it won't be too long. Good luck.

    Depending on the decision makers work load it can be between four to eight weeks but sometimes longer looks like you should be getting from your report enhanced mobility and standard care but you have to wait for the official award letter from DWP.
