    Hello and welcome, you must get a copy of your acessment report after requesting it from DWP it can take up to 14 days to arrive once requested others have had it within a few days. On receiving it you can workout what your award may, should be by add up the point awarded per each of the descriptors at the end of your report.

    The review in 1 year doesn't really mean anything because it says this sometimes for those who haven't been awarded, as well as for those that have been awarded.

    There was someone else on here a couple of months ago that received their report without the tick boxes in it. If i remember rightly they had to wait for a decision to be made. Not sure why sometimes reports are sent without this. All my reports i've received have had the tick boxes in there, with all recommendations in it. I've just had to add up those points.

    Hopefully it won't be long before a decision is made and in the decision letter you'll be able to see what points you scored, if any. Decision times can take 2-8 weeks, sometimes longer. Good luck.
