    Hi @janex welcome to the community! You need to wait for a decision letter which can take 6-8 weeks, it may take shorter or longer time as it depends on if there is a backlog of claims in your area.

    When the assessor said "to be reviewed in 2 years" - This means your claim will be reviewed for any changes in your circumstances. However, it is best to wait until you receive your decision letter to verify whether or not your claim has been successful or not.

    Hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any further questions :)

    That's a recommendation for Enhanced daily living only, no mobility. They usually go with the report, it's rare to go against it. You'll have to wait for the decision of course but hopefully it won't be too long.

    If you disagree, once you have the decision you have 1 month to request the mandatory reconsideration.
