Girlfriend’s decision letter has been sent out

She just called DWP for a fourth time.  The decision has been made and it was sent out on the 4th.  The lady on the phone said oh that was yesterday.

My girlfriend then said she doesn’t want know over the phone, then the lady said, “Are you sure? Oh, it won’t let me say anyway.  It just says decision: new award, but don’t ge excited as that can mean you’ve got nothing or everything.”

So fingers crossed now.  Letter should arrive next week I imagine.

    They don't realise how stressful and vital their decision is, it's usually a matter of starve, be homeless or not :-/ good luck

    Yeah, this is such a horribly nervous feeling.  I hope she gets what she deserves after a life of suffering :(

    Hi Jane, thank you so much.  I hope so too.  It will really better the chance that we can finally live together and I can move to where she lives if she gets it.

    How long did you have your award before review?  Do you keep receiving money throughout the review process?  I hope you are successful :)
