    Hi,

    There's no timescales for decisions, it depends on back log in your area. Beginning of November really isn't that long to be waiting. Some are waiting several months. If he is successful then the time he was in hospital will affect the amount they will owe him. Anything longer than 28 days and your PIP stops, sp he won't receive any money for 5 weeks of being in hospital.

    Hello and welcome it looks as if you're husband will have a psppa acessment and it just waiting for all the reports to come together for the decision maker to read and make the award . Once all the reports are at the decision makers office it usually takes 6to 8 weeks  for an award to be notified. You could, can ask if there as an acessment report if so can a copy be sent to yourself.
