Hi all I was just wondering how long a pip decision should take it’s been 10 weeks since my assessment and every time I ring they keep saying it’s still with the decision maker

    There's no timescales. The delay in making a decision could be that your assessment report was sent to audit which will delay a decision being made because a decision can't be made until both reports have been returned.

    As it's now been returned then if you haven't asked for a copy of the assessment report then ring tomorrow and ask for it to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report. Good luck.
