    You mean he was put on Contributions based and wasn't assessed for the Income related top up.

    I'm afraid it's impossible to answer that question on an internet forum. He'll need to wait for DWP to assess him. Time scales for this are 12 weeks, maybe longer. Once a decision is made they'll write to him.
