    Hi @irishmike welcome to the community!  Unfortunately, there isn't a specific wating time, this could be due to the backlog of claims in your  area.

    @Ami2301 is right, it is likely that the delay is due to a backlog.

    Hi @irishmike; your name suggests you might be in NI?  If not, and you're in mainland UK then you can ring up the DWP and ask for your assessment report which should give you an indication of the likely outcome.  Otherwise, they usually quote around 6 weeks I think, but some are quicker, some much slower.
