how long after you receive a letter to say they have all the information they need to decide if they can make an award did people hear back about your award

    Hello, it varies but anything up to 8 weeks, have you requested a copy of your acessment report? If not ring DWPand ask for a copy it can take up to 14 days to arrive but on receiving you can work out what your award will, may should be but you still have to for the official award notification letter.

    If you live in the UK that's not correct. They do send out the assessment report before a decision is made, i received my daughters report about 4 weeks ago. Ring again on Monday morning, chances are the person you speak to this time will agree to send it to you.

    As you live in Northern Ireland then you won't be able to receive the report until the decision is made. I assume it's because they just won't agree to send it over there, unlike here in the UK.

    That's very unusual for Northern Ireland because they don't usually send them before a decision is made. Did you ask if a decision's been made? made it has.
