    Hi @Wright welcome to the community! There is no specific waiting time, unfortunately. However, this  can all depend on the backlog in your area

    Lots of people receive PIP successfully first time without any problems at all. PIP isn't about a diagnosis, it's how those conditions affect your ability to carry out daily activity based on the PIP descriptors. Remember we mostly only hear the bad stories.

    You can ring DWP and ask for a copy of the assessment report to be sent to you. This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be as they mostly go with the report.

    My F2F report from Dec 18 was very much in my favour. I'm a bit shocked by it to be honest, but STILL no award letter to confirm . . . 10 weeks and counting :/

    There's no time scales to decisions, backlogs is just part of the reason a decision can be delayed.
