    Have you been referred for a work capability assessment? This will need to be done before any decision is made.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    There's no timescales to any decision. Backlogs are just part of the reasons a decision can be delayed. If your report was sent to audit then this can delay the process significantly. Have you requested a copy of the assessment report? This will give you some idea what the decision is likely to be because they mostly go with the report.
