    Have you been referred for a work capability assessment? This will need to be done before any decision is made.

    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.
