i was awarded PIP last year 2017 I had review paperwork come through May 2018   I've done all the face to face etc they say they have all the info to make a decision it's now been 6 months since I first applied and 6 weeks from the letter saying they had all the info. How long does it takes this is getting ridiculous

    There's no timescales. Backlogs is just one of the reasons a decision can be delayed. Ring to request a copy of the assessment report, if you haven't already done this. It will give you some idea what the decision is like to be as they most go with the report.
